    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.

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