Total Petrochemicals & Refining USA reported a fire that resulted in above-normal gas emissions over the weekend at its refinery in Port Arthur, Texas.
"A hole in a line released hydrogen that resulted in a fire at the Continuous Catalyst Reformer Unit," the refinery said in a statement to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. "The fire was extinguished. The unit is being evaluated."
It said the emissions, including some 5,001 pounds of carbon monoxide, began Saturday and lasted more than two hours.
The 225,000-barrel-a-day Port Arthur refinery is located 95 miles east of Houston.
