HOUSTON, July 11 (Reuters) - Exxon Mobil Corp XOM.N said on Friday production at its 349,000-barrel-per-day (bpd) Beaumont, Texas, refinery was not affected by the upset and return to service of a coking unit.

The coker unit lost feed and its heaters shut down on Thursday afternoon, according to a notice filed with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The heaters were restarted after feed was restored on Friday.

“There was no impact to production,” said Exxon spokeswoman Kathleen Jackson. (Reporting by Erwin Seba; Editing by Christian Wiessner)
