(Reuters) - Citgo Petroleum Corp reported a flare gas compressor shutdown on Sunday at its 167,000 barrel-per-day refinery in Lemont, Illinois, according to a filing with the National Response Center.

There could be a potential release of carbon dioxide and a mixture of gases, the filing said.

The company is the U.S. refining subsidiary of Venezuela's national oil firm Petroleos de Venezuela S.A.
