Restoration work is in full swing at the oil refinery in Kapotnya, southeastern Moscow
It was not possible so far to supply electricity to the refinery, the press service of the Russian Ministry for Emergencies told Tass on Wednesday, adding that 179 people are involved in emergency and restoration work. A fire at a transformer substation which flared up on Tuesday evening, resulted in a partial cut-off of power supplies to the Moscow oil refinery in Kapotnya. “To prevent the expansion of the emergency situation, measures were taken to cool up fire-prone installations at the enterprise,” the information service of the chief administration of the Ministry for Emergencies for Moscow told Tass. “As a result, gas condensate was burnt up with a flaming installation in a more intensive way,” the information service said. The service assured that there were no harmful discharges into the atmosphere. But the Ministry for Emergencies reported at the same time that “the examination of the air, conducted by a mobile laboratory of the monitoring and forecasting center, showed the presence in the air of carbon monoxide and the butane gas”. “However, their concentration is under the ceiling level, and, therefore, there is no threat to residents of this area,” the ministry reported with certainty. Nevertheless, the concentration of discharges is under constant control of the chemical and radiometric laboratory. Earlier, a duty officer of the Russian Ministry for Emergencies told Tass that the discharge of the gas-and-air mixture had decreased noticeably
