Reuters, August 24, 2021

Exxon Mobil Corp said a small debris fire near an out-of-service tank was quickly extinguished at its 369,024 barrel-per-day (bpd) Beaumont, Texas, refinery on Tuesday.

"There were no injuries ... we continue to meet contractual commitments," the company said in a statement posted online.

Exxon locked out 650 workers at the Beaumont refinery and an adjoining lube oil plant on May 1 and is operating the refinery with managers, supervisors, and temporary workers.
