ExxonMobil To Restart Idle Plant in California

ExxonMobil Corp is planning to restart some idled units at its refinery in Torrance, California

The restart process may lead to flaring at the refinery between February 15 to 22, according to a company filing with the South Coast Air Quality Management District.

"We are preparing some of the units for restart," Aarti Ramachandran, a company spokeswoman said in an interview Friday. "The turnaround is ongoing."

Earlier last week, Exxon said it was restarting one unit which had been shut at the plant for maintenance. The units being restarted this week weren't identified.

The Torrance refinery shut the following units for repairs in late December: a fluid catalytic cracker, a hydrotreater, an alkylation unit and one of two sulfur recovery units.

The Torrance refinery can process 155,800 barrels of oil a day, according to the US Energy Department.
