Fifty-eight U.S. oil refineries, including three in the Los Angeles area, are using a potentially lethal chemical that could result in a Bhopal-like disaster threatening as many as 12 million people across the country, a Washington-based environmental group has warned.

Champlin Petroleum and Rocky Mountain Energy will be merged into a single operating company called Union Pacific Resources, according to Union Pacific Chairman and Chief Executive William A. Cook. Headquarters for the new subsidiary will be in Fort Worth. Cook said the change will enable UP to make further cost and productivity improvements in the natural resource businesses and to manage them more effectively. UP bought Champlin, the firm's oil and gas company based in Fort Worth, in 1970.
