Fire at LOOP?


HOUSTON, March 10 (Reuters) - Marathon Oil Corp (MRO.N) said one person was killed and two people injured in a Tuesday fire at its St. James, Louisiana, pipeline station which supplies the company’s 256,000 barrel per day (bpd) Garyville, Louisiana, refinery.

Local media reports placed the fire at the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port’s nearby LOCAP pipeline facility, but a LOOP spokeswoman said its facility did not have a fire. (Reporting by Erwin Seba; Editing by David Gregorio)

Anyone have more details on this?


Marathon is one of the five owners of LOOP, it must have happen at their pumping station used to pump from the Clovies facility were all the oil is stored to their refinery in Garyville.

It goes
Grand Isle Block 59 -> Fourchon Pumping Station -> Clovis Storage Facility -> Pipe Lines for all the refiners.
