    Valero reports refinery fire in Port Arthur

    Valero reports refinery fire in Port Arthur

    Valero Energy Corp.'s refinery in Port Arthur, Texas, suffered a power outage and a fire Thursday morning at a heater in the facility's diesel hydrotreater unit.

    Company spokesman Bill Day says the fire was quickly contained and Valero officials notified all appropriate regulatory agencies.

    All 800 refinery workers were accounted for and there were no reports of employee injuries. However, Day says there has been a report of a contractor being transported to a local hospital due to anxiety.

    Power was out in only some areas of the refinery, but most of the processing units are still in operation. The cause of the incident is still under investigation.

    The company's Port Arthur refinery has the ability to process 295,000 barrels of oil per day.

    San Antonio-based Valero (NYSE: VLO) is an oil refining and marketing company that owns 17 refineries in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.
