Four were killled and another seriously injured in the 2011 incident.

Two companies face prosecution following an explosion at the Pembroke Refinery on 2 June 2011, HSE has announced.

The explosion and subsequent fire occurred at the site during tank-cleaning operations within the amine recovery unit and resulted in the death of four people, and serious injuries to one other.

Valero Energy UK Limited and B & A Contracts Limited are to face charges under Sections 2(1) and 3(1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974.
