Total Petrochemicals & Refining USA on Tuesday reported a tripped compressor that led to above-normal gas emissions at its refinery in Port Arthur, Texas.
"The Wet Gas Compressor at the Delayed Coker Unit (Unit 860) tripped, sending process gases to the flare gas recovery system, which was overwhelmed and sent the process gases to the North, South and East flares," the refinery said in a statement to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. "In order to minimize emissions, Total stabilized the unit and restarted the Wet Gas Compressor."
The emissions of some 75,000 pounds of sulfur dioxide began Monday evening and continued into Tuesday morning, lasting a total of about nine hours, the refinery said.
Total's 225,000-barrel-a-day Port Arthur refinery is 95 miles east of Houston.
