what caused it?
Just happened, we don’t know anything yet. Only everyone is safe!
George Bush, the Tea Party, Fracking — The usual suspects.
May we know what they manufacture at the site?
Stuff they use to drill wells and clean up natural gas.
You forgot sequester and the debt ceiling. Oh, and Global Warming/Climate Change.
“Thomas is about 90 minutes northwest of Oklahoma City.
The Danlin plant supplies chemicals to the oil industry and employs about 75 people in the town of about 1,200.
All employees had gone home before the blasts”
Oh, and I forgot SUV’s and Assault Weapons.
“Stuff they use to drill wells and clean up natural gas.”...
Who knows? It could be that or just an accident.
I think this is the company involved: http://danlin.us/index.html
They are in the oilfield fracking & downhole chemical business. I have been to Thomas, but it was quite a while ago. At the time I am not sure this plant was there.
Overview of Danlin Industries Corporation
Not my fault — haven’t has my coffee yet.
“Only everyone is safe!”
Thank God! And I will pray for the firefighters.
Domestic terrorists - that was my first thought. Seems to be a high number of plants blowing up/catching fire, etc. Just like the high number of forest fires.
There seems to be a lot of this tyope of thing lately.
AR-15 shotguns did it.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
They have expanded over the years from only making and “selling soap sticks to becoming a full line chemical, capillary and drilling company. They pride themselves in servicing all the production chemical needs of the Oil and Gas Industry, and appreciate all the partnerships that have developed within the Oil and Gas Industry”
“Danlin Industries is a full line chemical company offering the following products and services:
” Soap Sticks
Scale Control Chemicals
Paraffin Control Agents
Surfactants/ Cleaning/ Wetting Products
Nah. This is likely just some accident - this kind of chemical plant is more prone to problems than just making cereal.
What kind of ‘plant’?..................
