Homs Refinery still producing cooking gas despite terrorist attack

Homs, SANA – Despite being targeted by a terrorist attack on Saturday, Homs Refinery is still producing cooking gas cylinders.

Director General of Homs Refinery Company Haitham Msoker told SANA’s reporter that precautionary measures were taken as soon as the refinery was attacked and a number of units were shut down and were restarted later after controlling the fire that broke out as a result of the attack.

He said that two distillation units are currently operation, and that all maintenance and repairs will be concluded within three days.

Msoker said the gas pellets container, which sustained a small puncture, contained only a small amount of gas and has been cooled down until the fires died down, and that the overall damage is slight, being limited to damage to some pipes and cables.
