Western Refining, Inc. is a crude oil refiner headquartered in El Paso. The company’s refineries are located in Gallup, New Mexico, St. Paul Park, Minnesota, and El Paso, Texas, and have the combined capacity to process about 242,000 barrels of crude oil per day. All three refineries have loading terminals to transport products by commercial truck, and the El Paso refinery also delivers via pipelines. Western Refining also owns a number of terminals in New Mexico, Virginia, Arizona, and Texas, and it has about 260 retail outlets located throughout the southwestern U.S. In 2014, its revenue was an estimated $15.2 billion, and the company had 5,700 employees.

In 2017, Western Refining was acquired by Andeavor (formerly known as Tesoro), another independent refining company, for $6.4 billion. In 2018, Marathon Petroleum acquired Andeavor, replacing Valero Energy as the biggest oil refiner in the United States.

Refinery Accidents & Their Causes

Refineries are essential to American industry and our way of life. The people who work in crude oil refineries like Western Refining need to be protected on the job. They deserve the same level of protection as any person in any occupation, from police officers to schoolteachers. Even though their line of work involves inherent hazards, like operating heavy equipment and working around volatile substances, there is no excuse for the preventable accidents that injure and kill industrial workers. Oil and gas companies have an obligation to uphold safety standards and must be held accountable when they fail to protect workers.

Our team at Arnold & Itkin represents refinery workers in cases involving:

Oil refinery accidents are caused by aging or defective equipment, safety violations, inadequate training, and decisions by large corporations to put profits over the safety of their workers and the environment.

We shed light on the decisions and actions made by oil and gas companies to protect their interests instead of their workers’ wellbeing.
