Authorities are responding to an oil tank fire at a Tulsa refinery.
The Tulsa World reports a dispatcher confirmed the fire at the Holly Corp. refinery on Friday night.
It’s not yet known if anyone was injured or how extensive the fire is. Holly’s two Tulsa refineries can process up to 125,000 barrels per day of diesel, jet fuel and other petroleum products.

The previous Sunoco & Sinclair Tulsa refineries were joined after purchase by Holly. The Sun refinery has coker but the Sinclair coking project was cancled (coke drums were at warehouse Tulsa Port Catoosa).
Holly & Frontier had announced they were pursuing a merger in Feb 2011 (see Coking.com post) which would make 5th largest independent refinery just behind Valero & Tesoro. The merger still has pass both companies shareholders vote & the Hart Scott Rodino Act. A FrontierHolly company would have significantly improved Asphalt marketing & Sour Crude processing capability than either company has today. Regards
