NEW NPRA CHAIRMAN SEES MORE RATIONALIZATION AMONG U.S. REFINERS
The U.S. refining industry is undergoing a minirevolution as it enters another round of rationalization. That's what Roger C. Beach told the National Petroleum Refiners Association last week. A senior vice-president of Unocal Corp. and president of Unocal Refining & Marketing Division, Los Angeles, Beach is the newly elected chairman of NPRA. He was elected last week in New Orleans during NPRA's annual meeting. More than 2,700 industry representatives attended.
