Chevron Corp. (CVX) on Tuesday reported "excess opacity" from a gasoline-making fluid catalytic cracking unit as a result of a maintenance shutdown at its Pasadena refinery in Texas.

In a statement to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Chevron said the excess opacity happened Monday and lasted about one hour. It said, though, that the shutdown was May 16.

The 110,000-barrel-a-day refinery is located in the Houston area. Earlier this month, Chevron completed the purchase of the Pasadena refinery from Brazil's Petroleo Brasileiro SA (PBR, PETR3.BR, PETR4.BR) for $350 million. The 466-acre complex includes a storage tank farm and other assets.
