Exxon Mobil Corp cut back gasoline production at its 560,500 barrel per day (bpd) Baytown, Texas, refinery after a hydrotreater fire recently, said sources familiar with plant operations.


There were no injuries reported in the blaze at the Hydrofining Unit 9 on Saturday, the sources said.


In an emailed statement, Exxon said it had now contained the fire, which started at about 12:30 p.m. local time (1730 GMT). It confirmed no injuries had been reported.


“We are cooperating with necessary regulatory agencies, and a thorough investigation will be conducted to determine the cause of this incident,” Exxon said.


The unit uses hydrogen and a catalyst to remove sulfur from gasoline in compliance with US environmental rules.
