Description

The Texas Tribune and the Houston Chronicle spent months examining whether the nation's oil refineries had learned the lessons of the deadly explosion at BP's Texas City refinery in 2005, one of the most horrific and studied industrial accidents in U.S. history. What our reporters found was astonishing: that preventable deaths in the industry have barely slowed in the decade since the blast in which 15 workers lost their lives.
