A blast late last night shook BP's (NYSE:BP) Whiting, Indiana refinery, which produces 413,500 barrels-per-day, and is the company's largest in the nation.

The resulting fire from the explosion had been contained as of 9:30 pm local time, and a BP spokesman said the company was investigating and preparing a statement.

Last November, BP invested $4B in the facility to increase its Canadian crude oil intake from 85K to 350K bpd.
