PBF Energy Comments on Toledo Refinery Operations
PARSIPPANY, N.J. -- January 31, 2013
PBF Energy Inc. (NYSE: PBF) today reported that its Toledo refinery
experienced a drop in steam pressure last night, which was followed by a brief
fire beginning at 11:50pm within the Fluid Catalytic Cracking complex (FCC).
Emergency response personnel extinguished the fire in approximately 25 minutes
and there were no injuries or known offsite impacts. Appropriate government
agencies have been contacted and a full investigation into the cause of the
incident is underway.
Regarding operations, the FCC was the only unit involved and it has been
temporarily shut down. The refinery’s other processing units are currently
running at reduced rates or on standby. The company expects that it will take
several weeks for the refinery to return to planned operations.
