Odor source might have been found at refinery

Associated Press

RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) - Officials say a storage tank appears to be the source of odors at Sinclair Wyoming Refining Company.

John Pfeffer is a refinery environmental health and safety manager. He says the tank normally stores crude oil but was being used to store slop oils before being reprocessed.

Pfeffer says liquid streams being directed to the tank were hotter than expected and may have been causing the odors.

He says the refinery last week stopped diverting slop oils to the tank.
