Fire breaks out at Lukoil-owned Ukhta oil refinery

A blaze ripped through the small-scale Ukhta oil refinery controlled by Russian oil major Lukoil.  Video footage posted on social media purported to show a huge ball of fire over the refinery. The ministry of emergencies said the fire has spread through 1,000 square metres.

However, neither the explosion nor the ball of fire seemed to have worried the residents of the city as they proceeded to cross a road without looking at the blaze.

The refinery processed around 2 million tonnes of oil in January to November.
