The sun sets over a refinery in Port Arthur on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2008. For decades, major plants and refineries in Southeast Texas have avoided incidents such as the March 2005 BP plant explosion in Texas City. The BP explosion killed 15 workers.
Southeast Texas industrial officials point to heavy investment in safety personnel, regular equipment upgrades, stringent training requirements and regular testing of plant emergency warning systems as the reasons for safer workplaces.
