Exxon Beaumont refinery may begin shutting units Tuesday: sources

HOUSTON (Reuters) - ExxonMobil Corp XOM.N may begin shutting units as early as Tuesday at its 362,300-barrel-per-day (bpd) Beaumont, Texas, refinery due to high water in the plant from Tropical Storm Harvey, said sources familiar with the company's plans.

Exxon plans to shut the 240,000-bpd Crude B distillation unit and the 45,000-bpd coking unit first, the sources said.
