(Reuters) - Phillips 66 reported unplanned flaring at its 139,000-barrel-per-day (bpd) Los Angeles-area refinery in Wilmington, California, according to a filing with state pollution regulators.
The filing with the South Coast Air Quality Management District listed event start date as Nov. 26, 12:01 a.m.(local time) and event end date as Nov. 27, 12:00 a.m.(local time).
The refinery has two linked facilities about five miles apart in Carson and Wilmington. The former processes crude oil while the latter upgrades the products.
A refinery uses its safety flare when hydrocarbons cannot be processed normally due to a malfunction or planned work.
