Agencies Investigate Another Oil Spill at Phillips 66 East Bay Refinery

KQED California Report

State fish and wildlife officials have launched an investigation into a new oil spill at the Phillips 66 refinery marine terminal in Rodeo...“These kinds of small spills are like death to the Bay from a thousand small cuts,” said Sejal Choksi-Chugh, executive director of San Francisco Baykeeper, one of the organizations hoping to block the refinery’s expansion proposal. After their spill last fall, we would have hoped that they would have improved their operations to better prevent oil spills like this,” Choksi-Chugh said in an interview Tuesday. “This spill is definitely another black mark for Phillips 66 in their proposal to expand.”
