Flaring expected due to ExxonMobil plant maintenance

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant on Scenic Highway will experience intermittent flaring as part of planned maintenance beginning on June 20.

This is not an emergency situation.

The flares are primarily safety control devices used to consume excess hydrocarbons shutdown, startup, and other non-routine activities. ExxonMobil is aware the activity may inconvenience neighbors and they have taken steps to make sure good emission control practices are being implemented.

ExxonMobil says the safety of its neighbors and workers is its number one concern. Anyone with questions or concerns can call (225) 977-8393.
