NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- BP PLC (BP, BP.LN) said the Tuesday shutdown of a crude unit at its Cherry Point refinery in Blaine, Wa., resulted in a release of sulfur dioxide, according to a report to the National Response Center.

The release of sulfur dioxide was on-going when the report was taken Wednesday while refinery personnel continued to make adjustments to minimize and secure the release, the report said.

The refinery, which has been out of service since Feb. 17 due to a crude unit fire, is engaged in restart activities, a person familiar with the plant said Tuesday, which is in line with BP's estimate for a mid-May start up.

A BP representative wasn't immediately available to comment and typically doesn't comment on day-to-day refining operations.

The Cherry Point refinery's throughput capacity is rated at 230,000 barrels a day.
