Exxon Restarting Coker At Baytown
November 18, 2008

Exxon Mobil Corp is in the process of restarting a flexicoker unit at its 567,000 barrel-per-day refinery in Baytown, Texas, after planned maintenance work that was delayed by Hurricane Ike, a spokesman said Tuesday.

"We are completing the turnaround work and are in the process of beginning a restart of the flexicoker," Russ Roberts, a spokesman for the refinery, told Reuters.

He declined to give the capacity of a unit, which is essentially a coker using proprietary technology, or to provide an estimate on how long it would take the unit to reach full rates.

The work began around two weeks after Hurricane Ike hit the Texas coast on Sept. 13, causing the shutdown of several refineries, including Baytown, he said.

"We were planning and preparing to start the turnaround before the hurricane ... Ike delayed the start of the work," the spokesman said.
