Post Hurricane Harvey, Exxon Mobil begins to restart activities and facility assessments at its Baytown refinery. The company has also made significant progress in restarting chemical production, pipelines and other logistical infrastructure in the Houston area.

Irving, Texas/Houston — Exxon Mobil has recently stated that facility assessments and restart activities continue at its Baytown refinery, and that it has made significant progress in restarting chemical production, pipelines and other logistical infrastructure in the Houston area.

Post the storm, the company’s fuel terminals in Houston are open and supplying gasoline and diesel to customers. Offshore production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico are beginning to return to normal operations. Production units at the Beaumont refinery remain shut down due to flooding in the lower level of the refinery.
