Coke problems plague ConocoPhillips refinery

The ConocoPhillips refinery in Old Ocean was penalized $91,808 for failing to maintain an emission rate below the maximum allowable emission limits and by failing to comply with the permitted emission rate of one pound of particulate matter per 1,000 lbs of coke burned-off and failing to submit the initial notification within 24 hours of discovery, we read in the the latest issue of The Texas Registry, which we read when we have trouble sleeping.

That's $91,808 of tax-deductible money ConocoPhillips could have contributed to The United Way, or, heck, donated to the Save The Hoboes Fund, if only they had followed the rules.
