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.
