The following table lists unplanned and planned production outages at U.S. refineries as reported by Dow Jones Newswires. The information is compiled from both official and unofficial refining sources and doesn't purport to be a comprehensive list.

Tesoro Corp.'s (TSO) Wilmington, Calif., refinery is ramping towards normal operating rates on June 7 following a power outage the day before. Several unspecified processing units were affected by the outage, company spokesman Mike Marcy said late Tuesday.

Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) said on June 7 that shipping docks at its Baton Rouge, La., refinery had been completely re-opened after closoing on May 15 due to the Misssissippi River flooding. The docks were partially re-opened around May 25 when water levels receded, the company said at that time. The refinery is operating at planned rates.

Valero Energy Corp. (VLO) on June 7 said its Port Arthur, Texas, refinery was in restart mode following a power failure on June 6. The impact of the outage was still being assessed, the co. said on June 7.

BP PLC (BP) on Tuesday shut FCCU-3 at its Texas City, Texas, refinery to facilitate 48-hour maintenance at an associated Wet Gas Scrubber.

Several processing units at Western Refining's (WNR) oil refinery in El Paso, Texas, were restarted Monday after an early morning, spotty, power failure resulted in shut downs in the north and south sections of the plant, the company said in a filing to Texas state environmental regulators.

Citgo Petroleum Corp. on June 5 shut FCCU No. 2 at its oil refinery in Corpus Christi, Texas, due to a malfunction at an associated pressure control valve, the company said in a filing to Texas state environmental regulators.

Tesoro Corp. on June 6 said some process units at its Los Angeles-area refinery shut down on a power disturbance, according to a filing with state environmental regulators.

ConocoPhillips (COP) reported flaring activity at its Rodeo, Calif., refinery on June 5, according to a filing with state environmental regulators. The cause of the incident was not disclosed.

Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) performed planned maintenance at its 560,000 barrel-a-day refinery in Baytown, Texas, the company said June 3. A recording on the company's community hotline said "planned activities" were underway, but no description or timeline was given.

Citgo Petroleum Corp. reported equipment failure at an unidentified unit at its Lemont, Ill, refinery late June 2, according to a report submitted to regulators June 3. A company official said June 2 that the refinery was operating at reduced rates during repairs at a steam boiler and associated processing equipment starting June 1.

ConocoPhillips (COP) said that its Bayway oil refinery in Linden, N.J., is operating at reduced rates after a furnace fire broke out at its crude unit June 1.

BP PLC (BP, BP.LN) and Tesoro Corp. (TSO) both reported that flaring activity at their Carson, Calif., oil refineries will begin the week of June 6, in filings with state environmental regulators on June 2.

BP PLC (BP) reported excess emissions from fluid catalytic cracker No. 3 located at its oil refinery in Texas City, Texas, according to a filing with state environmental regulators on June 1.
