The state-controlled company said that, around 11:40pm local time on Sunday, a vapour line of the gas fractionation unit at the Achinsk refinery in Krasnoyarsk region depressurised, leading to a fire.
“A crisis center was formed. Within the central headquarters of the company a special commission was (also) formed. Vice-president Igor Pavlov is working on the site.”
The Moscow-based giant did not provide any further details but indicated that an update on the situation was due on Monday afternoon.
Local media earlier reported that 12 people were affected by the fire, with one person understood to have been killed. A further four were missing, Itar-Tass reported.
