Refinery explosions are among the most devastating industrial accidents than occur. Because the chemicals involved in refining often have a volatile nature—combined with complex processes prone to human error—mistakes can lead to truly tragic consequences. The most famous refinery explosion in recent memory, the Texas City Refinery Explosion in 2005, resulted in 15 deaths and over 170 injuries. However, refinery explosions are preventable. Regulations are in place to prevent such tragedies—BP eventually admitted that the 2005 Texas City event was a result of their employees’ negligence.
