Vicksburg Barge Accident Not Affecting Ergon Customers

Tue., Jan 29, 2013

On Sunday, January 27, 2013, two unaffiliated barges carrying crude oil collided with a railroad bridge on the Mississippi River near Vicksburg, MS.

Although this event and the resultant oil spill have caused delays for dozens of vessels, Ergon does not expect the incident to affect customer supply. In preparation for a planned turnaround at the Vicksburg refinery, shipments have already been delivered to Ergon’s terminals. Operations at Ergon’s refinery also remain unaffected.

As the situation unfolds, Ergon will continue to monitor events in Vicksburg and keep customers informed on the latest.
