 E M B A R G O N O T I C E REPORT EMBARGOED UNTIL 1 pm PDT on December 16, 2013
Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Chemical Safety Board’s investigation of the August 6, 2012 hydrocarbon release that occurred at the Chevron Refinery in Richmond, CA. The CSB’s regulatory report with recommendations was prepared for release at a 1:00 pm PDT news conference at the Hilton Garden Inn located at the:

The CSB determined that nineteen Chevron employees were engulfed in a vapor cloud formed  by the hydrocarbon release. Eighteen employees escaped before the fire started and one employee escaped without injury after the fire ensued. The incident resulted in six minor injuries. More than 15,000 residents in the surrounding area sought treatment at area medical facilities as a result of the release and fire.
