EMERYVILLE, Calif./HOUSTON, April 15 (Reuters) – – The U.S. Chemical Safety Board on Monday recommended that¬†Chevron Corp¬†check for ongoing damage to pipes and equipment at its U.S. refineries to prevent another explosion like the Aug. 6 pipeline blast at the company’s San Francisco Bay area refinery.

The Safety Board, in an interim report issued Monday, said Chevron did not act upon six recommendations over 10 years to increase inspection and replace the line at its Richmond, California, refinery with upgraded pipe.
