East Texas Refinery Should Be Back Online In May 2009
December 12, 2008

Delek U.S. Holdings Inc.'s (DK) refinery in Tyler, Texas, should be wholly online by May of 2009 following a fatal blast in November, the company said Friday morning.

The Nov. 20 fire at the saturates gas unit at Delek's refinery killed two workers and injured others.

The crude unit, a critical refinery unit, and saturates gas plant share a control room, the company said.

Fixing the units should cost $30 million, the company said. The rebuilding of the units cannot start until the investigations into the blast are finished, the company said.

The U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and the union representing Delek's workers are each investigating the explosion. The company is also investigating the blast.

The 60,000 barrels-a-day plant is Delek's only U.S. refinery.
