Blaze hits Marathon Texas City refinery storage tank


Blaze hits Marathon Texas City refinery storage tank. A fire broke out on Thursday afternoon on a storage tank pump at Marathon Petroleum Corp’s 451,000 barrel per day Galveston Bay Refinery in Texas City, Texas, which was owned by BP Plc.

Bruce Clawson, Texas City emergency management coordinator, confirmed there was a blaze and storage tank fire at one of the three refineries in Texas City.

A message issued by Texas City’s emergency management department told local residents that spilled oil on the ground around the tank had ignited, but they did not need to take any shelter due to the blaze.
