Planned maintenance under way at ExxonMobil’s Baytown complex

ExxonMobil Corp. has started scheduled maintenance on a fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit at its 561,000-b/d integrated refining and petrochemical complex in Baytown, Tex.

Planned maintenance activities at the refinery’s FCC are expected to continue for the next several weeks, stated Nicholas Scinta, ExxonMobil’s public and government affairs advisor, in an e-mail to OGJ.

The routine maintenance is part of the company’s ongoing effort to maintain the safety and reliability of operations at the Baytown complex, Scinta said.

Further details regarding the specific nature of work to be performed at the FCC were not disclosed.

ExxonMobil said it does not expect the planned shutdown of the gasoline-producing unit during the maintenance period to impact the company’s ability to meet its contractual commitments to customers.

The Baytown refinery, which has the ability to process up to 584,000 b/d of crude oil, operates two FCCs with a combined processing capacity of 204,000 b/d, according to the latest operational data available from ExxonMobil’s web site.
