Somerset, Ky. refinery back in business

A historic refinery in south-central Kentucky that sold at auction last fall has returned to operation.

The former Somerset Refinery has been officially operating as Somerset Energy for about the past month.

In 2008 Michael Grunberg bought the ailing refinery for $2.2 million. After upgrades over several months, the business resumed operations with 55 employees many of them former Somerset Refinery employees.

The refinery hopes to employ some 150 people within the next two years.
