Flint Hills to increase Pine Bend refinery capacity

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 29 -- Flint Hills Resources LP plans a $100 million expansion of its Pine Bend refinery in Rosemount, Minn., that will increase the refinery's crude oil processing capacity to 330,000 b/d from 280,000 b/d.

The increased capacity, expected to come on line in mid-2007, will help meet growing demand for gasoline and diesel in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, and North Dakota, the company said.

The project also will enable Flint Hills Resources, Wichita, Kan., to utilize an anticipated increasing supply of Canadian crude oil in 5-7 years.

Flint Hills Resources, a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries Inc., also owns refineries in Texas and Alaska, a chemical facility in Illinois, and has an interest in a base oil facility in Louisiana.
