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

The refinery, which has been out of service since a February 17 crude unit fire, is engaged in restart activities, which could include several more stops and starts as trouble-shooting efforts continue, a person familiar with the plant said on Thursday.

"It's pretty normal to have to make adjustments whenever you restart a unit, especially if its been down 'cold' for so long," the person added.

BP spokesman Scott Dean, citing company policy, was not able to comment on day-to-day refining operations but did say the 230,000-barrel-a-day Cherry Point refinery is on schedule to restart, as expected, by mid-May.
