A 78,000 barrel-per-day reformer at ExxonMobil’s Baton Rouge refinery in Louisiana was badly damaged by a fire, a news report said.
Sources told Reuters that the blaze broke out early on Wednesday when work to fix a leak was being carried out.
There is no timeline for repairing the reformer, the report said.
An Exxon spokeswoman did not reply to a request for comment.
No injuries were reported due to the blaze.
