Report: Exxon, Phillips 66 battle small refinery fires amid maintenance season

A Baytown, Texas, refinery owned by Exxon Mobil Corp. caught fire March 16 as the refinery was shut for seasonal maintenance, according to a March 16 report from Bloomberg.

Bloomberg said the fire began in a furnace at a gasoline hydrofiner, which removes sulfur from fuel to meet clean-air standards.

In the same report, Bloomberg said Phillips 66 also shut a crude unit at its Carson plant in Los Angeles on March 15 due to a fire that was extinguished after three hours.

Bloomberg said the fires could help hike oil prices, which have been on an uptrend since January.

Exxon's Baytown refinery, which is the third largest in the U.S., can process 560,500 barrels per day of crude oil into gasoline, diesel and other fuels, while Phillips 66's Carson refinery has a total capacity of 139,000 bbl/d.
