    NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- Exxon Mobil Corp.’s refinery in Baytown, Texas, reported an upset at a delayed coking unit Saturday evening, according to a filing with state environmental regulators.
    Delayed Coking Unit 1 caused flaring after a valve on the C601 compressor suction malfunctioned. The valve was adjusted to end the emissions release, which lasted less than two hours.
    “There was no impact on supplies and all customer needs were met,” the filing submitted Sunday said. Coking units are used to process heavy residual oil into light, higher valued products.
    The Baytown refinery has the capacity to process 567,000 barrels of crude
