    Worker Hurt at ExxonMobil Torrance Refinery Coker

    (Reporting by Bruce Nichols and Erwin Seba)

    HOUSTON, April 14, 2009 (Reuters)A worker was seriously burned during work on a coke drum at the Exxon Mobil Corp Torrance, California, refinery over the weekend, sources familiar with refinery operations said Tuesday.
    A spokeswoman for Exxon Mobil confirmed the accident occurred Saturday but declined to discuss details other than to say the worker was hospitalized. Refinery production was not affected, the spokeswoman said.
    The worker was burned over 80 percent of his body when hot condensate was released during work on the coke drum, sources said.
