As reported by Reuters, ExxonMobil has begun restarting its 369 024 bpd Beaumont, Texas, US, refinery and adjoining chemical plant.

Exxon posted an online notice to nearby residents that the refinery was starting up after a shutdown driven by severe cold weather and the curtailment of natural gas supply.

“We have begun restart activities at our Beaumont facilities,” said Exxon spokesman Jeremy Eikenberry. “Our primary focus continues to be the safety of employees, contractors and communities in the region.”

Some units at the complex were kept in operation to return power to the grid, Exxon said in an earlier statement, producing 200 megawatts and supplying electricity to 100 000 homes.
