A grim, major Christmas time ExxonMobil Baytown explosion resulted in the hospitalization of at least four workers at a massive facility about 25 miles from downtown Houston. Emergency response officials and associated investigators, including the Harris County Sheriff, have classified the incident as a “major industrial accident.” The Doan Law Firm, headquartered in Houston, has established an ExxonMobil Baytown explosion lawyer hotline at (832) 835-0000.
The status of the quartet of injured workers has not yet been released to the public or press. In addition, the names of the hospitalized individuals have also not been made available as of this time.
An investigation has now commenced into what caused the ExxonMobil Baytown explosion. There is no significant information yet available from the ongoing investigation. The specific site of the explosion within the complex has been identified.
The blast occurred in the section of the ExxonMobil Baytown complex that refined oil and processed it into gasoline. The gasoline production of the facility produces about 560,000 barrels of product daily. It had been one of the largest gas refining facilities in the United States at the time of the explosion.
The gasoline production part of the complex has been completely shut down. There is no specific timeframe for which gasoline production will resume at the ExxonMobil Baytown facility.
The ExxonMobil Baytown facility has multifaceted operations. The massive complex includes:
560,000 barrel-per-day oil refinery
As mentioned, the ExxonMobil Baytown facility is located about 25 miles outside of the city of Houston. It is located at 3525 Decker Drive in Baytown. The ExxonMobil Baytown facility is located along the Houston Ship Channel.
The ExxonMobil Baytown explosion occurred at a complex that sits on 3,400 acres. The ExxonMobil Baytown facility employs about 7,000 workers. Those injured at the gasoline refinery section of the plant were all workers.
In the aftermath of the ExxonMobil Baytown explosion, there was no shelter in place order issued for those people who live and work around the blast site. Typically, such an order does issue following this type of industrial accident.
Management at the ExxonMobil Baytown facility did conduct a press complex following the incident. Beyond advising that a complete investigation is underway, officials from the company had little new information to present to reporters. The spokesperson for the company underscored that the ExxonMobil will cooperate with investigators. Prior to the press conference, the company issues a brief statement:
Our first priority is people in the community and in our facilities. Air monitoring continues along the fence line. Available information shows no adverse impact at this time. We deeply regret any disruption or inconvenience that this incident may have caused the community.
