refinery, refinery, where for out thou refinery?

About 18 Texan oil refineries are threatened by Hurricane Rita.

On Thursday, September 22, 10 refineries in the Lone Star State and one in Louisiana were fully shut, including Exxon Mobil's Baytown, Texas refinery, the biggest in the United States. Three others were at least partially shut. A significant amount of oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico remains shut and reports of banged-up platforms and rigs continued to trickle in as companies conducted aerial inspections of offshore facilities.
