SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) _ Television evangelist and businessman Pat Robertson has abandoned plans to reopen an oil refinery on a 100-acre site in this Los Angeles suburb, opting instead to develop a business park.

Environmental groups had opposed the plan and city officials have been working with Robertson’s company, CENCO Refining, for several months to explore alternatives. The refinery closed in 1995.

``CENCO will work with the city and the development community to do a mixed-use business park development in three phases,″ said City Manager Fred Latham.
