"A bellows failed on 17PSV-1410 at the Naphtha Unit 825," the refinery said in a statement to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. "Operations were able to quickly isolate the PSV [pressure safety valve] and stop the leak."

It said the emissions of volatile organic compounds happened Thursday, lasing one hour.

The 225,000-barrel-a-day Total Port Arthur refinery is 95 miles east of Houston.
