Oil refinery in Somerset to resume production

SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) - An oil refinery in Somerset is planning to resume operations after being closed for nearly two years.

Continental Refining Company spokeswoman Missy Shorey told the Commonwealth Journal that production is expected to begin at the refinery before the end of the year.

Shorey says 30 employees have been hired already, and another 10 to 20 would be needed when the refinery reaches full production.

She said an opening ceremony will be held after operations begin again.
