Massive Explosion and Fire at Petrochemical Terminal - Video

Published in Oil Industry News on Wednesday, 15 January 2020

Graphic for News Item: Massive Explosion and Fire at Petrochemical Terminal - Video

A major explosion followed by a serious fire in Changlian Petrochemical base, located in the Gaolan area of Zhuhai Port, just across the border from Macau at the mouth of the Pearl River

Earlier today, a petrochemical terminal at Zhuhai Port in southern China suffered a major explosion, causing a massive fire, according to Guangdong authorities.

Changlian Petrochemical plant, owned by Zhuhai Changlian Petrochemical Co,.Ltd a subsidiary of the Esson New Energy Group, is located at the Zhuhai Gaolan Port.

According to some eyewitnesses at the scene and sources, at around 1:43 pm local time, some 40 fire trucks and 200 local firefighters were dispatched to the scene, including firefighters from Guangzhou, Foshan, Jiangmen, and Zhongshan.

Following the safety protocols, the terminal workers and nearby areas have been evacuated by the authorities.

No reports of casualties have been reported so far.

According to Zhuhai Authorities, the fire was already under control and an investigation has already initiated on this incident.

Changlian Petrochemical terminal started production in 2003 and has an annual capacity capable of producing over 1.2 million tons of petrochemicals.

In July last year, the Guangdong Chemical Industry Law Enforcement Inspection Guangdong Working Group revealed 15 potential safety hazards during their inspection.

Some of the findings indicate major mistakes about fire operations as covered within the safety management regulations of the company's hazardous operations documents, according to some sources.

At that time, the inspection team requested the company to rectify these conditions immediately.
