The gasoline-producing fluidic catalytic cracking unit at Chalmette
Refining's 192,500 barrel per day refinery in Chalmette, Louisiana,
malfunctioned late on Tuesday, according to trade and industry sources.

A compressor malfunctioned on the 71,600 bpd FCCU, the sources said.

Gasoline was up 1 cent a gallon in U.S. Gulf markets due to the malfunction,
traders said.

A spokesman for Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N), which operates the refinery, was
not immediately available to discuss refinery operations.
