Phillips 66 reported emissions at a gasoline-making fluid catalytic cracking unit of its refinery in Borger, Texas.
In a statement to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the refinery said the emissions began Thursday afternoon and lasted about eight hours, adding the equipment has since been re-started. "An investigation into the cause of the incident will be conducted," it said.
The 146,000-barrel-a-day refinery is located in the Texas panhandle, northeast of Amarillo.
