Motiva’s Norco Refinery had a pipe rupture while contract workers prepare Coker for scheduled maintenance shutdown Monday.
Seven workers were taken to hospital but only 4 were injured – 3 had burns.  
In an unrelated incident, Shell Chemicals adjacent olefins unit shutdown due to a compressor trip the next day (Tuesday).
Several other refineries have reported accidents / incidents this week.
