HOUSTON, Mar. 21
-- Tesoro Corp. will expand crude capacity of its 58,000-b/d refinery at Mandan, ND, to 68,000 b/d to handle oil from the Bakken shale and elsewhere in the Williston basin.

The company expects to invest about $35 million in the expansion.

“Tesoro expects to supply the plant with additional crude oil from the burgeoning crude oil production in the nearby Bakken shale/Williston basin area via the Tesoro High Plains Pipeline system,” the company said in a statement.

Processing capacities at the refinery include 25,700 b/d of fluid catalytic cracking and 11,500 b/d of cyclic catalytic reforming.

Average throughput over the past 3 years has been 52,000 b/d.
