    Delek Burns Gases at Texas Refinery During Unit Start (Update1)
    2008-06-27 14:50:40.80 (New York)

         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.
