Phillips 66 Reports Unit Shutdown at Sweeny Refinery in Texas

By Dan Molinski

Phillips 66 on Thursday reported an equipment problem that force a regenerator unit shutdown at its Sweeny refinery near Houston.

"A pressure indicator on the suction to a compressor malfunctioned causing the system to pressure up and the unit to shutdown," the refinery said in a statement to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. "Operations personnel restarted compressor per procedure and returned the unit to normal as quickly as possible."

It said the incident also led to above-normal gas emissions that happened Wednesday and lasted more than two hours.

The 247,000-barrel-a-day Sweeny refinery is located in Old Ocean, southwest of Houston.
