Most people who run a crude oil facility with exchangers pumps distillation columns flares floating roofs boilers call them REFINERIES...Because thats what they are...

And no .. Galveston Fire Dept doesnt have the experiance to fight an Industrial fire..

He should be required to join IMAS

The same organization that protects Texas City Industries..

Imdistrial Mutual Aid Society

Must be a soft refinery.

I hope it doesn't somehow stink worse, or put any more sulfur into the air, than the usual big piles of sulfur do.

It will stink worse. It will also be more deadly due to the poisonous hydrogen sulfide that will be produced in the process. Leave the refineries in Texas city. Don't bring them here.
