Exxon Mobil Startup Information

 


This is a notification from the City of Torrance, TorranceAlerts System


ExxonMobil Restart Expected May 7, 2016


As many of you know, in February 2015, an explosion occurred at the ExxonMobil Refinery. Since then, that portion of the refinery has been shut down and inoperable. In April, at a public meeting with the South Coast Air Management Quality District (AQMD) Hearing Board, ExxonMobil was given clearance to restart their operations. It is estimated, that part of the restart will result in higher particulate matter emissions for a six-hour period.  This temporary increase in emissions during the restart period is not anticipated by the South Coast AQMD Hearing Board to exceed national and state health-based air quality standards.

ExxonMobil will begin to restart their production operations effective May 7 during the hours of 7 p.m. – 7 a.m.


As a condition of this restart, the AQMD has required ExxonMobil to place door hangers throughout the community within a 1 mile radius of the refinery 48 hours prior to restart operations.  Beginning Thursday, May 5, the public residing and or working within 1 mile of the refinery may see contractors hired by the refinery placing the door hangers as required by the AQMD. 

 

ExxonMobil has requested the City’s partnership in notifying the community. Should there be a change in the schedule, we will provide additional information as it becomes available.
