Re: Terrorist attack?

CNN says it's a 70,000 bpd refinery, this one says 170,000. Never heard of a propane de asphalting unit? The picture I saw didn't look good. The good thing is no fatalities. Worked in oil refineries for 32 years, seen alot of fires & hope I never see another one. It's allways intertaining to see the news reports, they are allways BS.

Re: Terrorist attack?

Big E, Isn't it always interesting to hear their slant on news worthy stories that you are close to. After a couple of them I quit watching the "NEWS" or reading the paper. When you realize that they have no idea of what they are talking about from an inside perspective you lose faith in what they have to say. If you think about it, it is all hearsay, thay have little personel experience with subjects they report on. After talking with a couple of witnesses they formulate a story and we all know that in a room of people everyone will have a different view of what happened.

A couple of incidents on the Mississippi River and I was amazed at the ignorance of the local news media. You would think New Orleans would have an expert for a reference but it is obvious that they dont.

Re: Terrorist attack?

So is this 2 that blew up just recently? I heard on the news last night about the one in Big Spring, but I didn't hear anything about the one near Amarillo.

Re: Terrorist attack?

I was thinking it was the same one but, I could be wrong.

The reporters don't have a clue what they are talking about & you can't expect them to. The good part is the companies know this, shoot them a line of BS & let them run with it.

Your not wrong there. Even the BBC made me out to be some eco nutter and misquoted people left right and center. I used to trust the BBC-not now.

Re: Terrorist attack?

According to the article posted, that explosion was around Amarillo. The story I heard on ABC News was a refinery in Big Spring. Big Spring ain't anywhere near Armarillo (unless you call 300 miles close). ABC News did say 70K bpd, though. If this is the same one, somebody sure needs to look at a map.
