Governor’s Weekly Message: Delaware City Refinery: Six Years Later

Newark, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell recognizes the significant economic progress we’ve made in the six years since the Delaware City Refinery closed its doors.

“Today, the Delaware city up and running more efficiently, cleanly, and safely than ever, and we should pause and take note of what that says about the spirit and fortitude of our people,” said Governor Markell. “Our work is far from done, but six years after the refinery shuttered, it represents the ability of our people to keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
