ConocoPhillips to Repair Incinerator at Sweeny, Texas, Refinery
By Christian Schmollinger
Aug. 4, 2009 (Bloomberg) — ConocoPhillips will begin repairs on an incinerator at the sulfur recovery unit at its Sweeny, Texas, oil refinery.
The company will fix the incinerator at its Unit 39.1 because it was producing more carbon monoxide than the manufacturer guaranteed, according to a regulatory filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The repairs will start today and last until Aug. 18, the filing said.
Sulfur recovery units collect the sulfur removed during oil processing.
The refinery can process 247,000 barrels of crude oil a day, according to the Energy Department.
