SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Fifty-five people were killed by the explosion that rocked an oil pipeline in China’s Shandong province last Friday, Chinese refiner Sinopec said on Monday.

Nine people are still missing while 136 are hospitalised after the incident that occurred at the company’s Dongying-Huangdao crude oil pipeline in Qingdao on 22 November, Sinopec said, correcting earlier Chinese media reports that the leakage occurred at the Huangdao-Weifang oil pipeline.
