DOW JONES NEWSWIRES The following table lists unplanned and planned production outages at U.S. refineries as reported by Dow Jones Newswires.

A cooling unit malfunction at Citgo's 166,000 barrel-a-day Corpus Christi, Texas, refinery took place the afternoon of July 15, according to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

A flaring event took place on July 15 at ExxonMobil's 240,000 barrel-a-day refinery in Joliet, Ilinois, according to the National Response Center.
