June 27,2007 (Bloomberg) — Delek U.S. Holdings Inc. burned off
gases at its Tyler oil refinery in Texas as it started a
gasoline-making unit and a boiler. The gas release began at 11:37 p.m. local time yesterday
and was expected to continue until 5:45 a.m. today, Delek said
in a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
Delek burned off an estimated 19,000 pounds of carbon
monoxide as it started a fluid catalytic cracker and the boiler
following a “brief power interruption,” the Franklin,
Tennessee-based company said in the filing.
“It’s over, We’re back to normal,” Paula Lovell, a
spokeswoman for Delek, said in an interview.
Delek reported a power failure at the plant on June 18. The
refinery can process 60,000 barrels of oil a day, according to
U.S. Energy Department data.
