Scope & Content THE SEATTLE TIMES, on Friday, October 4, 1957, published an article on the use of bacteria to remove carbolic acid from waste water before it is discharged into the ocean. The two photos were of Shell Oil refinery on the left, and the preparation of land for building the Texaco refinery on the right. The two refineries combined were expected to cost about $130,000,000 and to require 90,000 barrels of oil a day. The oil would be supplied by a pipeline from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and by tankers from the Middle East. [ Later, tankers would also bring oil from Alaska.]
