Flint Hills Resources Corpus Christi Refinery in Texas experienced a brief, unplanned shutdown of a second stage recycle compressor at the plant's hydrocracker unit, according to a filing made public to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

The incident ended after 10 minutes in the West Plant section of the refining complex.

Upon identification of this incident, FHR initiated prompt measures to assess, minimize, and correct the upset conditions," the filing said.

The current operating status of the compressor and hydrocracker unit wasn't clear. A company spokesperson wasn't immediately available and typically doesn't comment on day to day refining operations.
