The 200,000 bbl/day refinery had a brief power issue late on Tuesday, Valero spokesman Bill Day said. The company reported a loss of power that led to flaring in a filing with federal pollution regulators.

β€œIt did not result in unit shutdowns or any material impact to production. The refinery is operating at planned rates,” Day said.
