Exxon Beaumont refinery working to restart hydrocracker: sources

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Exxon Mobil Corp was working to restart the hydrocracker at its 365,644 barrel-per-day (bpd) Beaumont, Texas, refinery, after it was taken out of production by a compressor failure, sources familiar with plant operations said.

The 65,000 bpd hydrocracker lost the compressor on Tuesday morning, the sources said. The hydrocracker outage also triggered flaring at the refinery’s gasoline-producing fluidic catalytic cracking unit (FCCU).
