15 January 2008

BP announced, on January 15, that a worker died at its Texas City oil refinery.

The death occurred near the refinery’s ultra-cracker process unit and BP has begun an investigation.

In 2005 the same refinery suffered a fatal explosion that killed 15 people. The safety standards at Texas City were criticised in the wake of the accident.
