TPC Port Neches, Texas blast due to 'fundamental failure': U.S. safety board

BEAUMONT, Texas (Reuters) - A Nov. 27 explosion at the TPC Group TPCL.UL petrochemical plant in Port Neches, Texas, was due to a “fundamental failure in the system,” U.S. Chemical Safety Board member Manuel Ehrlich said on Thursday.

The specific event that triggered the early morning blast has yet to be determined, Ehrlich said.
