Three contractors were hurt in a flash fire late on Tuesday at BP’s 337,000 barrels-per-day refinery in Whiting, Indiana, but sources said other refinery operations at the largest Midwest refinery were not affected. The injured contractors were working on a hydrotreater, one of several units undergoing planned work, when the fire ignited, according to individuals familiar with the refinery operations. Industry intelligence group IIR Energy said the work on the 105,000 bpd hydrotreater was temporarily suspended after the fire, but is still expected to wrap up by late September or early October.
