ExxonMobil on Monday said operations at its oil refinery in Beaumont, Texas, had returned to normal following a gas compressor problem the day before.

The company said emissions of hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide were routed to the plant's coker unit flare stack on Sunday in a filing to the US National Response Center.

"Regarding your inquiry on Beaumont, a STEERS Report was submitted due to emissions associated with flaring when a compressor tripped. Operations have returned to normal. The Beaumont Refinery anticipates no impact to production," company spokeswoman Rachael Moore said.

The Beaumont refinery has a capacity of 344,000 bpd.
