Tesoro Corp. (TSO) on June 6 said unspecified planned maintenance is under way at its Wilmington, Calif., refinery. The unit, or units, involved in the work wasn't disclosed.

Valero Energy Corp. (VLO) on June 6 said recent upsets at its Port Arthur, Texas, refinery had no material impact to production.

BP PLC (BP) on June 6 said flaring may be visible at its Carson, Calif., refinery between June 8 and 11; the event isn't associated with equipment breakdown, a filing to regulators said.

Motiva Enterprises LLC's newly-commissioned crude unit at its Port Arthur, Texas, refinery will be shut for up to three more days before restarting it, a source familiar with the refinery said on June 6. The 325,000-b/d unit was taken off-line early on June 4 after leaks occurred because of loose valves.

Phillips 66 (PSX) on June 5 said recent maintenance at its Rodeo, Calif., refinery had been concluded; no other details were provided. The refinery reported flaring associated with a unit restart on May 31.

Several units, including a coker, pretreater and hydrogen unit, are scheduled for several weeks of planned maintenance at Exxon Mobil's (XOM) Torrance, Calif., refinery, the co. said on June 4. The plant filed a planned flaring report to Calif. regulators on June 1 stating flaring may be visible between June 4 and 13.
