【大纪元2011年08月29日讯】(大纪元记者洪宁报导)8月29日10时许,辽宁省大连市甘井子区的中石油大连石化分公司储运车间875号800吨柴油储罐起火,火势凶猛,浓烟滚滚直冲云霄,约有三十米高,在大连市内清晰可见。
此是继今年7月16日该公司厂区内1千万吨常减压蒸馏装置换热器发生泄漏并引起大火之后的又一突发事故。8月25日,该厂又排放有毒粉末状“白雪”,覆盖街道及居民院落,工人称是催化剂泄露,属重金属。

当地居民告诉大纪元记者,这次火灾现场位于石化公司成品油罐区,那里有数不过来的柴油、汽油等成品油大罐,一旦爆炸,大连恐将被毁。

大陆官方媒体消息称,29日上午,大连石化分公司875号柴油罐发生火灾,目前附近已实行交通管制,截止13时20分左右,火灾基本被扑灭。

“那里有数不过来的成品油大罐”

12:44分,目击者陈广禹先生(化名)告诉记者:“大火起于上午10点左右,我在家里能看到天空滚滚黑烟遮住半边天,直到12:30仍有浓烟往上窜,不散。”

据陈广禹分析,起火位置位于石化厂北山村的成品罐区,罐装的成品柴油、汽油等。他焦急地说:“那里有数不过来的大罐,很危险,一旦爆炸,后果不堪设想。”“我们这里刚遭毒‘白雪’,又遇大火,没法活了,吓死人啊!”

他还说,空气中有一股似液化气的味道。采访中,记者从电话里可以清晰听到消防车发出刺耳的鸣叫,他说是正开往火灾现场的。

官媒消息称,事故是因工作人员操作过程中发生静电起火引发爆炸,事发时约一公里的位置能听到沉闷的爆炸声。着火的柴油罐处于企业油品罐区内,周边遍布存储汽油、柴油、石油液化气、航空燃油的罐体,着火罐内储存柴油约800吨,事故罐区内另有三台油罐存有柴油。

下午2点,大纪元记者问询大连市甘井子区环保局,燃烧后的气体是否会造成污染,工作人员称,一切消息以媒体报导为准。

记者又致电大连市政府应急办,问询火灾情况及是否有安全隐患,对方回答称不授理任何谘询。市委宣传部办公室电话则无人接听。

“PX没解决,又来了大火”

居民于黎明接受采访时介绍,他中午下楼买菜还看到现场那边的大火伴有浓烟,“大家都知道那里全部是油罐,如果爆炸,直径范围内的大连市都得完。俺们现在特别担心,非常危险。”他称,从北山村到海茂村都是石化厂的,靠近海边,该厂天天排放有毒废气。

网友Jimmy微博称,着火地距市中心不过三海里,如果连罐着火,后果……大连人祈福吧,祝同样在岗的我和同事们平安,祝大连平安。

有多位市民向记者反映他们心里的不安。他们表示,不知道往哪撤,要是大罐爆了,市内也保不住,哪也跑不了。“PX毒还没解决,又来了大火。”

大连因石油惹火上身

近年来,石化企业进入事故多发时期。中海油蓬莱、绥中油田相继发生溢油事件、中海油惠州炼油厂也发生泄漏着火事故。

据悉,中石油大连石化公司目前是中国最大的炼油厂。此前2010年7月16日,中石油大连油港的一条输油管道也发生了爆炸漏油事故,泄漏的1,500吨油入海,造成430余平方公里海面污染的重大污染。同年10月24日下午,大连新港码头油库“7•16”爆炸事故现场拆除着火油罐时,引燃罐体内残留原油,再次发生火情。

祸不单行,2011年7月16日,中石油大连石化公司再发火灾,新区三蒸馏1千万吨常减压装置换热器“大帽”泄漏着火。

业内人士指出,1年多的时间,中石油在大连就接连发生四起火灾事故,说明该公司在安全生产管理上,存在诸多隐患。

Smoke billows from a fire at Chinese state-owned oil giant
PetroChina’s largest oil refinery in Dalian,
in China’s northeastern Liaoning Province, on Aug. 29, 2011. (AFP/Getty Images)

A huge fire at China’s state-owned PetroChina Co. refinery in northeastern
port city of Dalian has disaster-weary residents on edge, about yet another
environmental threat. “We don’t know where to
escape to; if there’s a big explosion, the city will blow up too,” one
worried resident told The Epoch Times.

Chinese media reported that a
diesel storage tank containing 800 tons of
fuel caught fire in the morning of Aug. 29, sending a huge, black billow of
toxic smoke into the air. The blaze continued for about three hours before
firefighters managed to put it out.

The reports also said that the fire
was caused by static electricity generated by workers operating the tank, and that the tank was among many other storage
tanks.

Mr. Chen, a local man who witnessed the fire, told The Epoch Times
that the blaze started around 10 a.m., with billows of thick smoke covering half
the sky until 12:30 p.m.

He said he was frightened because there are
countless storage tanks with finished crude oil in the refinery owned by
PetroChina.

“It’s very dangerous. I can’t imagine what would happen if
they exploded,” Chen said.

He also said that there’s a strong smell of
liquid gas in the air.

Mr. Li, another Dalian resident, also said that he
was really worried. “The area is full of oil storage tanks. If they exploded,
the city of Dalian would also explode and be completely destroyed,” he
said.

PetroChina is China’s biggest oil producer. This is the fourth fire
that has happened in PetroChina’s Dalian storage depot since July 2010. A fire
broke out in the same refinery on July 16. Last year two fires, one in October
and the other in July, broke out in another facility in Dalian. This is also the
fifth major environmental disaster to hit the city.

In July a typhoon
breached a dike protecting the Fujia Dahua Petrochemical Company in Dalian’s
port that triggered a mass protest by citizens fearing highly toxic paraxylene
pollution. Tens of thousands of residents took to the streets on Aug. 14 to
demand the shutdown of the chemical plant. The mass protest was the largest in
northern China since the 1989 Tiananmen Square student protests.

Several
Dalian residents told The Epoch Times that they are worried about living in
Dalian as oil refineries and chemical plants
are allowed to be established near the densely populated urban area.

“We
don’t know where to escape to; if there’s a big explosion, the city will blow up
too,” one resident said.

“They have not yet resolved the paraxylene
problem, and now we are hit with another fire,” another resident
said.

The Epoch Times contacted the Environmental Protection
Bureau in the Gangjingzi district, where the refinery is located, to inquire
about air pollution concerns caused by the
fire, and was told that people should go by whatever the media says.

Another call to the Emergency Office of Dalian produced even less
information. Asked about any safety concern in relation to the fire, the office
staff said they “decline to respond to any questions.”Read the Chinese article.
