Last night it was reported that very bright flaring was seen at the Phillips 66 plant at Rodeo. A reporter on Channel 2 this morning said a there was a community alert but I see no evidence of that.
I welcome comment from the refinery. I know that they monitor this page.
Edit – 9:55 AM
The following statement was released from Phillips 66
At approximately 10:15 pm Pacific time on May 18 the Phillips 66 Rodeo Refinery experienced a process interruption.
The refineryâ€™s safety systems worked as designed to direct fuel gas to the facilityâ€™s flare, resulting in visible flaring.
There were no injuries and all personnel are safe.
The refinery continues to operate and a comprehensive investigation will be conducted to determine the exact cause.
