    Motiva to Emit Gases From Port Arthur Refinery Coker (Update1)

    By Ann Koh and Paul Burkhardt

    June 8, 2010 (Bloomberg) — Motiva Enterprises LLC is repairing a pump at a coking unit at its Port Arthur, Texas, refinery, which may lead to emissions of gases from today through June 13.
    The delayed coking unit jet pump has a bearing and seal failure, the company said in a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Not shutting the pump down could result in an emergency shutdown of the coker, the filing showed.
    Motiva is a venture between Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Saudi Arabian Oil Co. Shell does not comment on the status of individual refineries or refinery units for competitive reasons, Ted Rolfvondenbaumen, a Shell spokesman, said in an e-mail.
    The Port Arthur plant can process 285,000 barrels of crude oil a day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The refinery produces gasoline, aviation fuel, diesel, industrial fuel oil and petrochemical feedstocks, according to a Motiva website.
