There was an explosion at a oil refinery in another state recently that caused the death of at least one worker and injured another. Initial media reports say that a furnace in a section of the Chevron Pascagoula Refinery exploded, triggering a fire.
Few details were available the day of the work accident, which happened during the night shift early on Nov. 15. The furnace was located in the refinery’s Cracking II Processing Unit. A cracking unit is part of the process of converting crude oil into fuel and other products.
