HOUSTON (ICIS)--US refiner Valero will carry out planned maintenance at its McKee refinery in Texas, the company said in a state regulatory filing on Thursday.

The work at the 156,000 bbl/day refinery in Sunray, Texas, will take place on a flare gas recovery system, Valero said in a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

It will include preventative maintenance and replacement of the flare line piping, which could result in excess emissions intermittently from Thursday morning through Friday, according to the filing.
