EIA: Capacity at operable US refineries increases

As of Jan. 1, the 143 operable refineries in the US had a total crude distillation capacity of 17.8 million b/cd, up 2.9% from a year ago, according to data from the US Energy Information Administration.

The increase in capacity is attributable mostly to Motiva Enterprises’ expansion of its Port Arthur, Tex., refinery and the restart of the Trainer, Pa., refinery, which was formerly owned by Phillips 66 and is now owned by Delta Airlines subsidiary Monroe Energy.

Motiva’s Port Arthur facility, owned 50:50 by Royal Dutch Shell PLC and a unit of Saudi Aramco, is the largest refinery in the US with 600,250 b/d crude distillation capacity. According to Oil & Gas Journal’s annual refining survey, it is one of the ten largest refineries worldwide by crude distillation capacity.
