DOW JONES NEWSWIRES The following table lists unplanned and planned production outages at U.S. refineries as reported by Dow Jones Newswires. The information is compiled from both official and unofficial refining sources and doesn't purport to be a comprehensive list. BP PLC's (BP, BP.LN) San Francisco-area oil refinery in Carson, Calif., is operating at planned rates after restarting a hydrocracker unit last week, a person familiar with operations at the plant said on March 7. The unit experienced an emergency shutdown Feb. 24 a filing to California environmental regulators said. There is no maintenance under way at the 253,000-barrel-a-day refinery other than routine day-to-day work, the person added. Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) on March 7 said its Beaumont, Texas, refinery is resuming normal operations and anticipates meeting all contractual obligations during the restart of an FCCU. A CO boiler tripped during the restart process on March 5 but was restarted relatively quickly, a TCEQ filing said. A previous TCEQ filing said an FCCU was shut for minor equipment repairs on Feb. 15. ConocoPhillips on March 5 said planned turnaround maintenance is under way at its San Francisco refining complex, which include the Grande Arroyo and Rodeo plants. Traders said a crude unit, reformer and coker unit would be included in the work that is expected to end at around March 25-28. The company wouldn't specify the units involved in, or the duration of, the maintenance. A flash fire at a flare platform at Valero's (VLO) Memphis, Tenn., refinery on March 6 is not expected to extend five weeks of planned turnaround maintenance under way since March 2 at the plant's crude unit. Three contract workers were injured in the fire. No other production units were affected by the fire. Citgo Corp. shut an alkylation unit at its Corpus Christi refinery on March 5 when a sensor detected a release and set off water cannons in the unit. The release was caused by a small flange leak, the company said and there was no impact to air quality. Alon USA on March 3 took an off-gas compressor off-line at its Big Spring, Texas, refinery due to a problem at a gas-oil hydrotreater, a filing to regulators said. BP PLC said Feb. 29 it will idle operations at its Cherry Point refinery in Ferndale, Wash., through April as the company performs maintenance in the aftermath of a Feb. 17 fire at the plant.

(CVX) reported "low feed rates" and "unstability" Feb. 27 at its refinery in Richmond, Calif., according to a government document made public the following day.
