South Jersey stink: Oil leak at PBF Paulsboro refinery

66 million gallons, a day's production, spewed on the ground

South Jersey stink: Oil leak at PBF Paulsboro refinery

South Jersey stank for miles around PFB Energy's Paulsboro oil refinery yesterday after a leak yesterday wastes 6.6 million gallons of oil, about a day's production. NJ DEP tells Gloucester County Times and local the spill hasn't reached the Delaware, nor will the smell make you sick, so move along, nothing to see here, the experts have everything under control.
