The Associated Press reports:
CLAYMONT, Del. — Delaware Gov. Jack Markell says Sunoco’s Claymont ethylene complex should
stay closed until the cause of the explosion and fire there earlier this month is determined and the plant
can run cleanly.
Markell toured the damaged Claymont branch of Sunoco’s Marcus Hook Refinery, which straddles
the Delaware-Pennsylvania border, yesterday afternoon after meeting with firefighters to praise
their quick action during the emergency.
The blaze shut down the Delaware portion of the refinery, but caused no injuries.
