    Default Husky Toledo Refinery shut down after explosion/fire

    I have mentioned a few times that refineries have not been doing all of the maintenance in order to keep running to keep gas prices down this summer, and that the result would likely be fires and exploding fuel prices.

    It looks like we are here, though we are still awaiting details of what blew up and burned, and how long it will take to repair.

    In August 2022, Cenovus reached an agreement to purchase bp’s 50% interest in the bp-Husky Toledo Refinery in Ohio. Cenovus has owned the other 50% of the refinery since its combination with Husky Energy in 2021.[20]

    Oh My...this could be a complicated rebuild....and is a red flag for management failure, which would complicate things even more. One owner was getting out, the other owner is Canadian.

    A full 24 hours in and we are still told nothing about what happened, or what the ramifications will be.

    Sadly the new normal in dying America.

    You know that the Save The Planet types are agitating for it to not be fixed.

    Husky's much smaller WI refinery blew up April 2018 (negligence) and still has not been rebuilt. Current estimates of the cost to do so is $1.2 billion.

    Back in the Good Old Days when we still had journalists we found out the gist of what happened in these sorts of situations within 24 hours (less usually).

    THere is clearly an information embargo by those in charge, and since we allowed journalism to die we know nothing.

    We are to occupy ourselves crying over the two brothers who died I suppose.

    We have no right to information power does not want us to have.

    Did the two dead steelworkers fuck up and cause their own deaths (and fuck the region)?

    That would certainly account for the information embargo.

    An unnamed source told Reuters the day of last week’s fire that leaking fumes from a crude unit may have caused the ignition in another unit at the facility. The refinery, a very old facility which originally started production in 1919, had just completed a once in five years “turnaround,” when production is shut down for inspection, cleaning and major maintenance and repairs. The process had reportedly been completed and production resumed.

    The resumption of production at a refinery requires meticulous work, involving careful monitoring of pressure and temperature levels. Was this rushed or done without trained crews?

    Considering that there is still a information embargo on what happened almost certainly yes.

    Still no word on what caused the fire, nor if or when it will be rebuild, but workers are being laid off:
