I heard that this turn-around is 8 weeks long. Also, a new company has come to town. They're with the refinery.

You're way behind the times. This has been discussed repeatedly in the Coffeyville Journal and the Montgomery County Chronicle.

Every once in awhile, at least once a year, the refinery shuts down and hires temporary employees to come in and clean the place. I worked one year and I remember cleaning alot of tanks, inside.

It is not once a year. It is usually every 3 years. However, it has been since spring of 2007 since the last turn around at the Coffeyville refinery. During turn around, they shut the units down and make repairs and replace equipment. Since a refinery is losing money if they are not running, they bring in a ton of workers to get the repairs done as quickly as possible so they can get up and running again.

This turnaround is to be over approx the second week of November. Then in March, there will be a second turnaround to do some work that they didn't have time to get done in the timeframe for the current one.
