Petron Denies Fire in Bataan Refinery After Quake

Petron Corporation denied reports saying a fire broke out in its refinery in Bataan following the 6.1-magnitude earthquake that hit parts of Luzon past 5 PM Monday

In a statement, the company said "the recent strong earthquake that hit Central Luzon triggered the protective tripping of some units at the refinery and the eventual plant shutdown, followed by the usual flaring of gases as required."

"Contrary to false information being spread, there was no fire at the refinery," it added.
