Exxon Mobil Corp. said Tuesday a pressure problem at its Baytown, Texas, oil refinery forced it to implement an unscheduled equipment shutdown.

"Unplanned shutdown of DCU [delayed coking unit] wet gas compressor due to low lube oil pressure resulted in safe utilization of the flare system," the refinery said in a statement to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

It said the emissions began Monday afternoon and lasted until Tuesday morning, spanning about 13 hours total.

The 561,000-barrel-a-day Baytown refinery is 25 miles east of Houston.
