A powerful explosion thundered at a large refinery in Indonesia

19

A massive explosion is reported at an oil refinery in Indonesia. We are talking about a large enterprise Pertamina, located about two hundred kilometers from the capital of the country - the city of Jakarta. After the explosion, a fire broke out, the flames and smoke from which are visible several kilometers from the scene of the incident.


According to the latest information, at least 5 people were hospitalized.

It is reported that the explosion occurred at night. Dozens of fire brigades and evacuation brigades are working on site.

The cause of the incident is being established. At the same time, statements appeared in local media that the explosion could allegedly be associated with a lightning strike into one of the tanks. Experts are skeptical about this version, noting that lightning rods (lightning rods) were used throughout the plant, which minimized the risks associated with natural electricity.

At the same time, the following fact attracts attention: an explosion at a large oil refinery occurred a day after the terrorist attack on one of the churches in the same country. The bomb near the Catholic cathedral was detonated by an unknown person who eventually died himself. At least 14 people were seriously injured in the attack.

The police will have to find out if the two incidents can actually be linked to each other within a few hours.

Experts believe that in connection with the incidents in the Suez Canal and at the plant in Indonesia, oil prices may rise significantly.

      Isn't it already the "hand" of GDP again? Something suspicious: both Suez and Indonesia ... and oil prices are already growing ... Mattress makers will again impose sanctions.

    I wonder how a fire at an oil refinery can cause an increase in oil prices? If, on the contrary, oil consumption in Indonesia will decrease until the completion of the repair and launch of the refinery? To fill the recovered tanks, too much oil is not needed, these are not underground gas storage facilities, where gas can be pumped for several months.

    Somehow "heap" goes ... And all for oil. The Houthis also hit the Saudi oil industry recently. Who will hang the order for the captain of the container ship? laughing for another month they will not be able to pull it off the shallows - there will be a shortage of tankers in the world. And gas carriers. How fragile the global transportation system turned out to be! What kind of war? One careless steering wheel movement, and a worldwide Ayabrik ...

      The news drawing in the form of a member, which drew the ill-fated tanker before climbing in and blocking the channel, died down. As it turned out on ours!

      One careless movement of the steering wheel, and the worldwide Ayabrik ...

      Everything according to Zhvanetsky: "One careless movement - you are a father!" The shortage of tankers is not yet known, but the shortage of containers is already evident, and hence the rise in prices for goods.

    The refinery was not designed and built by amateurs, taking into account the possible risks of natural factors: typhoons, thunderstorms, earthquakes, etc. This means that they provided for a system to counteract lightning strikes.
    Pertamina seems to be working with Rosneft, they are planning the construction of an oil refinery.
    Some kind of refinery for Pertamina was built by Iran.
    To counteract sabotage and possible terrorist acts at any refinery there is a security and protection service, checks and exercises are carried out by special services / law enforcement agencies of the state.

    Regarding the losses incurred by Egypt, who provided the pilotage for this container ship? Not Egyptians, no? what
