    Chalmette, La., refinery FCCU malfunctions-sources

    HOUSTON, June 2, 2010 (Reuters)The gasoline-producing fluidic catalytic cracking unit at Chalmette Refining’s 192,500 barrel per day refinery in Chalmette, Louisiana, malfunctioned late on Tuesday, according to trade and industry sources.

    A compressor malfunctioned on the 71,600 bpd FCCU, the sources said.

    Gasoline was up 1 cent a gallon in U.S. Gulf markets due to the malfunction, traders said.
    A spokesman for Exxon Mobil Corp, which operates the refinery, was not immediately available to discuss refinery operations.
