SINCLAIR, Wyo. (AP) - The largest maintenance in Sinclair Refinery’s history will bring in nearly 3,000 workers over the next few months.

The Rawlins Daily Times reports (https://bit.ly/1FiN9d8 ) the maintenance on the oil refinery begins Monday. Corporate maintenance manager John Anderson says there will be about 800 workers during the first phase and about 2,100 more will be brought in mid-July.

Anderson says workers will be cleaning and inspecting specific units. He says repairs, if necessary, will also be performed to make sure the units are operating safely.

With the influx of outside contractors, there has been difficulty in finding housing for the workers. But, officials say the maintenance is important to the refinery’s health.

Sinclair Refinery’s community relations director, Ryta Sondergard, says the maintenance could have a positive impact on the economy.
