HOUSTON (ICIS)--US-based refiner Phillips 66 on Wednesday reported emissions at its Wood River refinery in Illinois as a result of planned maintenance.
About 500 lb (230 kg) of sulphur dioxide was released when a compressor was shut down for maintenance, according to a filing with the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA).
The compressor has since been brought back on line, the company said.
The Wood River refinery is a joint venture between Phillips 66 and Cenovus Energy.
