Motiva completes Port Arthur, Tex., refinery expansion

By OGJ editors

Motiva Enterprises LLC, Houston, reported the completion of the 325,000-b/d expansion at its refinery in Port Arthur, Tex.

Nameplate capacity now is 600,000 b/d, making it the largest US refinery. The project took 5 years to complete (OGJ, July 25, 2011, p. 24).

The expanded refinery can process a wide variety of crudes, ranging from relatively light to heavy. It also has the flexibility to switch between primarily producing gasoline and diesel to adapt to varying market conditions, the company said.

Motiva Enterprises is a refining and marketing joint venture owned by affiliates of Royal Dutch Shell PLC and Saudi Aramco.
