    Flint Hills Shuts Corpus Christi Refinery Units (Update1)
    2008-05-28 10:33 (New York)

    By Nidaa Bakhsh and Robert Tuttle
         May 28 (Bloomberg) — Flint Hills Resources LLC, a
    subsidiary of Koch Industries Inc., shut processing units at its
    Corpus Christi, Texas, refinery because of a loss of steam.
         The lack of steam forced “several process units and
    critical equipment to be shut down,” the company said in a
    filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
         Flaring, or release of gases into the air, from a gasoline-
    producing fluid catalytic cracker, cogeneration unit and sulfur
    recovery unit began yesterday
    and was expected to end at 8:40
    a.m. local time today.
         Katie Stavinoha, a company spokeswoman, declined to comment
    on the report.
         The refinery has a maximum oil-processing capacity of
    305,000 barrels a day, according to the U.S. Energy Department.
