Here is update on Western’s effort to sell Yorktown & growing understanding from local’s at magnitude of loss tax revenue (+$4MM /yr) which often lead even hostile residents & politicians to make concessions towards survival of the plants from all but environmental liberal wingnuts.
Doesn’t seem to be any new offers or potential canidates – and given range margins/crude required for profitability it is unlikely to reopen in near term.
