    with a big plant like that, didn't anyone smell the gas prior to the explosion?

    n.g. is flammable/ explosive between the 4-14% gas to air mixture.

    you're talking about a lot of leaking gas to do that damage.

    have they determined the exact cause of the blast already?

    i have a friend that's an investigator for incidents like this. he'll have the scoop.

        The article mentioned leaking ammonia. If they are referring to anhydrous ammonia, it's usual commercial form, then it's pretty explosive as well.

          The CSB has sent a team to investigate. Their site will have a report when their investigation is done. They usually have a video or some sort of reconstruction of the accident so it might pay to check their site from time to time. Report probably won't be ready for a few weeks. When the big explosion at Valero's Delaware City refinery happened a couple years ago they did a full report, you will find it on their site.

          "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
          John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

            (EDIT: I'm not sure I buy the "purge of the line" caused this. Gas leak, other chemicals, & hot surface ignitor?)
