Worker dies at Exxon Mobil Singapore refinery

Exxon Mobil Corp. says that one worker was killed and another critically injured late Monday during maintenance work at its Singapore Jurong refinery.

Exxon Mobil said in a statement Tuesday that two contractors were found unconscious in an enclosed space filled with nitrogen.

A 34-year-old Indian national died later at a hospital while the other worker is in critical condition.

The company said it is cooperating with authorities to investigate the cause of the incident.

Exxon Mobil said it suspended maintenance at the 605,000 barrels per day capacity plant, which manufactures a wide range of fuels, lubricants and specialty products that are sold in Singapore and exported to Asia.

    • Peck Ong All major oil & gas company has confined space work procedure but most of the time testing procedure may not have carried out accordingly due to negligence. It is one of the most dangerous place to work because most toxic gases are odourless.
