Examining the Texas City Refinery Accident
A recent example of an oil refinery accident can be found in the Texas City Refinery Explosion of 2005. This refinery was old and many speculated that it was not properly maintained. An investigation just prior to the explosion found that many pipes had worn too thin, concrete had chipped, and fumes had been leaking. The accident happened just before summer's high oil demand, so machines were likely running at high capacity at the time of the incident.
The blast killed 15 workers and injured another 170. This one tragic accident serves to prove the importance of maintaining oil refineries so that they are safe. Such large and complicated plants require extensive check-ups in order to ensure that everything is running smoothly and safely.
