Accident causes explosion at PKN-Orlen Lithuania refinery

March 05/2012

(Reuters) - An accident at the PKN-Orlen-owned Lietuva refinery in Lithuania on Friday caused an explosion, killing two workers, the refinery said in a statement.

"During an accident which occurred today at the Deep Conversion Complex (KT) two persons died when a portable vacuum tank exploded," the statement said. The statement gave no information about whether production at the refinery had been affected.

PKN ORLEN operates 7 refineries, of which 3 are located in Plock, Trzebinia and Jedlicze (Poland), another 3 in Litvinov, Kralupy and Pardubice (the Czech Republic) and 1 in Mazeikiu (Lithuania). The total deep processing capacity of the refineries reaches 31.7 million tonnes per annum (PKN ORLEN share).
