Connacher’s Montana Refinery at Normal Rates After May 24 Fire

June 05, 2012

Connacher Oil and Gas Ltd.’s Great Falls, Montana, refinery is running at normal rates after the naphtha heater was shut down following a May 24 fire.

The unit came back online May 25, and the shutdown didn’t affect production, Jesse Beaudry, Calgary-based vice president of sustainability for Connacher, said by phone.

“Things were back to normal in fairly short order,” Beaudry said.

The plant, owned by Connacher’s Montana Refining Co. subsidiary, produces 10,000 barrels of refined product a day and receives heavy crude oil by pipeline and rail car, the Montana Refining website shows.
