Explosion and fire shut Irving Oil refinery in Canada

October 10/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- A major incident occurred at Irving Oils Saint John refinery in New Brunswick on Monday morning, reported Reuters with reference to the company's statement on Twitter.

Residents in the area reported an explosion and fire at the refinery, local media reported.

Irving Oil Corp shut its Saint John refinery in the Canadian province of New Brunswick after an explosion and a major fire that followed.

"We can confirm that a major incident has occurred at our Saint John refinery this morning. We are actively assessing the situation at this time and will share more information when available," The company shared on Twitter.

The company operates the 320,000 barrel-per-day refinery at this site.

As MRC wrote before, in July 2018, the sale of a remote Canadian refinery was scuttled as two former oil traders running the company locked horns over the value of the plant. The partners, former traders Neal Shear and Kaushik Amin, sought to sell the 130,000 barrel-per-day refinery in Come By Chance, Newfoundland last year to privately held Canadian refiner Irving Oil, which was seen as the leading bidder.
