Largest Refinery In US Midwest Shuts Down After Power Outage
[link to www.zerohedge.com (secure)]


The largest refinery in the US Midwest has been shut down after a power outage hit the facility Thursday afternoon.


BP's Whiting refinery, located in Whiting, Indiana, is the Midwest's largest refinery and largest globally for the British multinational oil and gas company. It can process 440,000 barrels of crude oil daily.




Commodity analyst Giovanni Staunovo posted on social media platform X, "As a result of this power outage, additional product is being burned, which will cause additional flaring of the stacks. This flaring is a safety release to burn off the extra product and is a normal process during an event. BP is working to resolve the power outage as quickly as possible."

Perfect timing considering that oil tanked earlier on the news that Israel and Palestine had agreed to a possible cease fire over hostage negotiations...peculiar to say the least.

Not terribly bad. Power outage system went to default emergency procedures to dump fuels in the lines to a controlled burn off to prevent damage to the systems. Made a mess of the air around here but if you don't burn off the problems would have been 10,000 times worse.

They will begin restarting units in the morning after cooldown
I would expect restoral by Monday at the latest.

Port Arthur TX, I filled up about 9 days ago at $3.37 gallon...
Same place today was $3.79...
Still got 1/3 tank but will probably fill up tomorrow....
I'm betting the air attacks will happen this weekend and will really cause it to go up...
