Refinery Quotes by Mukesh Ambani, Florian Schneider, Marsha Blackburn, Aliko Dangote, Sherwood Boehlert, Jeff Goodell and many others.

We are using new technologies in meaningful ways. To build our new refinery in 60 percent of the time it took to build our first, we are training 20,000 people in a new generation of welding technology in six months.
Mukesh Ambani
Our studio is in the middle of an oil refinery. There’s smoke and fire around it and when you emerge from the studio you hear this hissing sound all around you.
Florian Schneider
Liberals in Congress have spent the past three decades pandering to environmental extremists. The policies they have put in place are in large part responsible for the energy crunch we are seeing today. We have not built a refinery in this country for 30 years.
Marsha Blackburn
Where the foreign exchange is not available, we are cutting down our operations. For example, we had a vegetable oil refinery; we have shut it down. We had a tomato-based processing plant; we have shut it down.
Aliko Dangote
Having yet another vote on refinery legislation that uses high oil prices as an excuse to weaken environmental protections and to give more legislative gifts to the oil industry is misguided in the extreme.
Sherwood Boehlert
Is it in our national interest to overheat the planet? That’s the question Obama faces in deciding whether to approve Keystone XL, a 2,000-mile-long pipeline that will bring 500,000 barrels of tar-sand oil from Canada to oil refineries on the Gulf of Mexico.
Jeff Goodell

Gene Green
A dapper Canadian in his mid-fifties, Rob McEwen bought the disparate collection of gold mining companies known as Goldcorp in 1989. A decade later, he’d unified those companies and was ready for expansion – a process he wanted to start by building a new refinery.
Peter Diamandis
In the United States, liberals have made it virtually impossible [to increase the supply of oil] by banning drilling in all sorts of places and preventing any new refinery from being built anywhere in the country in the last 30 years.
Thomas Sowell
The tallest building in the world is now in Dubai.
Fareed Zakaria
If you don’t have a refinery operating, it’s hard to use oil that’s available.
T. Boone Pickens
The tallest building in the world is now in Dubai, the biggest factory in the world is in China, the largest oil refinery is in India, the largest investment fund in the world is in Abu Dhabi, the largest Ferris wheel in the world is in Singapore.
Fareed Zakaria
There is no excuse-and we should call a spade a spade-for chemical companies and oil refineries using our major rivers as pipelines for toxic waste. There is no excuse for communities to use other people’s rivers as a dump for their raw sewage.
Lyndon B. Johnson
The IEA member countries will exercise flexibility in re-establishing their emergency stock levels through 2006, noting the need to take into account seasonal demand and the possibility of higher than expected refinery maintenance.
Claude Mandil
What oil companies don’t want you to know is that refineries use a huge amount of electricity in refining gasoline. And that’s usually not even figured into reports about gas cars’ overall energy use.
Chris Paine
But had they not paid that advance we would have lost much more, we would have started to go and look for the product all over again, the refinery would have stopped working.
Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka
Of the 55 refineries closed in America in the last 10 years, they were all closed for economic reasons, mostly oil company mergers. Not a single one was closed for environmental purposes or objections.
Peter DeFazio
I flew a full string of 35 combat missions over some of the most heavily defended targets in Europe. We were hitting Hitler’s oil refineries, his tank factories, his aircraft factories, his railway yards. Those were our prime targets.
George McGovern
