October 12/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- An explosion in a storage tank at a Tupras refinery in the western Turkish province of Izmir on Wednesday killed four people but had no impact on production, reported Reuters with reference to the company's statement.

Tupras said in its statement that the explosion occurred following maintenance work on Wednesday morning.
