Exxon Mobil Corp. reported a combustion incident over the weekend at a gasoline-making unit of its Baytown oil refinery in Texas.

"Unplanned combustion event during turnaround activities that resulted in smoldering and release of smoke," the refinery said, noting it happened within a gasoline-making fluid catalytic cracking unit.

It said the incident began Sunday and lasted nearly two hours before the combustion was extinguished.

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