Accident at Casper Sinclair Refinery
The Sinclair Casper Refinery reported an accident Thursday morning.
There are several construction projects going on at the refinery and at 9 am Thursday, an excavator accidentally punctured a gas line, that was thought to be abandoned.
It turns out, it wasn't and there was a gas leak, and the plant alerted the Emergency Response Team. They were able to isolate area and stop the leak.
During that time, no one could enter the facility, and even railroad traffic was halted. The accident was on the company property, but not in the refinery itself.
No one was injured, and refinery operations were not interrupted.
