***DRILL*** Initial public statement on the incident in Billings, MT

At approximately 12 p.m. on August 20, 2019, a loss of containment occurred from a crude oil tank located at the Phillips 66 Billings Refinery.

Our primary concern is the safety of our employees and the local community surrounding the facility.

All employees and contractors on site have been accounted for, no injuries have been reported.

Accordingly, we immediately mobilized trained emergency response personnel and are working with local public safety officials to address the situation. We have also mobilized resources to evaluate potential impacts on the local environment and have resources available for a prompt response if necessary.

At this time we do not have an estimate of how long that will take or the full impacts of the event but again our primary concern is the safety of our employees and the local community.
