Essar extinguishes furnace fire at UK refinery


LONDON -- A fire broke out in a furnace of Essar Energy's Stanlow refinery in the UK on Saturday, but it has since been extinguished and isn't affecting deliveries to customers, Andrew Turpin, a company spokesman, said Monday.

"Supplies to customers are being largely maintained to schedule, and we have plans in place to ensure this remains the case while repairs are made to the unit," Mr. Turpin said.

The fire didn't impact the two main crude distillation units or the residue catalytic cracking unit, the company said.

No one was injured.
