    Exxon Restarts Baytown Fluid Catalytic Cracker Boiler (Update1)
    2008-04-14 06:07 (New York)     By Sophie Tan
         April 14, 2008 (Bloomberg) — Exxon Mobil Corp. is restarting the
    boiler of a gasoline-making unit at the largest U.S. refinery
    after planned maintenance.
         The process of restarting the fluid catalytic cracker
    facility at Exxon’s Baytown, Texas refinery began yesterday and
    will be completed on April 15,
    the world’s largest oil company
    said in a filing with state environmental regulators.
         A fluid catalytic cracker processes vacuum gasoil into
    gasoline and improves profitability by increasing the output of
    higher-valued light products from lower-cost heavier crude
    grades.
         Exxon restarted a crude oil processing unit at the refinery
    after two months of maintenance, Russ Roberts, a company
    spokesman, said on March 31. The Baytown plant can process
    586,000 barrels of crude oil daily, according to the U.S. Energy
    Department.
