REFINERY NEWS: Phillips 66 says Alliance refinery remains shutdown after Hurricane Ida
Phillips 66 confirmed flooding at their New Orleans-area Alliance refinery as a result of Hurricane Ida, as the refinery remains shutdown, according to a company statement issued late Sept. 1.
“The company can also confirm it discovered a sheen of unknown origin in some flooded areas of Alliance Refinery. At this time, the sheen appears to be secured and contained within refinery grounds. Clean-up crews are on site,” the statement said, adding that a full post-storm assessment is continuing at the plant.
“Timelines for operational restarts are largely dependent on assessment impacts and access to electricity and other utilities,” the statement said.
The refinery was shut down on Aug. 27 prior to Hurricane Ida making landfall on Aug. 29 at Port Fourchon, located to the south of the plant.
