Why is there always fire coming from oil refineries?



  1. 0 Votes

    The flame is burning natural gas that is escaping. Natural gas is one of the products of the refinery process, and pressure builds up as more and more gas is created. In order to regulate the level of pressure that the gas builds to in the refinery, there is a release valve that allows a little gas to escape as a safety precaution. This release tower is the gas flare flame that you see continually burning.
