    Pasadena Refining Texas Plant to Shut Cat Cracker for Repairs
    2008-02-21 10:04 (New York)

    By Robert Tuttle
         Feb. 21 (Bloomberg) — Pasadena Refining System Inc. is
    shutting a gasoline-producing unit at its Pasadena, Texas,
    refinery for “specific repairs,” the company said in a filing
    with state regulators.
         When operations are restored to the fluid catalytic
    cracker, the refinery may burn gas into the atmosphere until the
    unit’s wet gas compressor can be started, the report said. The
    “event” began at 5 a.m. today.

    Maybe they should have fixed the TNT valve on the blower as well.
