Volatile Separation - A Portrait of the Citizens Gas and Coke Plant

Now that this post has been titled like a 'Made for television movie', lets get down to business...

Awww man, that's no fun...


I have no idea of what the function is for most of these various parts of the plant, so I won't even try to explain them ;-)






As I walked by, I could hear the very distinct sound of extreme volumes of gas under pressure flowing though these pipes.






Probably shouldn't be here, but hey nobody caught me...


This monster can be seen from many different parts of the East side.


I wonder how often these stairs were climbed when this plant was operating?


Not quite sludge, not quite mud...Smludge?

Is this place now totally closed down?

I believe there may still be a skeleton crew there maintaining the gas mains that run through the place. For the most part though, its a ghost town.
