Calumet completes Texas refinery expansion

Calumet Specialty Products Partners LP has completed a 3,000-b/d expansion of the crude unit at its San Antonio, Tex., refinery (OGJ Online, Nov. 6, 2013).

The expansion, which boosted crude processing capacity at the refinery to 17,500 b/d from 14,500 b/d, was completed during December 2013, the company said in its latest earnings release.

The company also confirmed it has completed a gasoline blending project at the San Antonio plant that will allow the refinery to blend up to 5,000 b/d of finished gasoline.

The expansion at San Antonio comes as part of a three-part, $500-$550 million set of organic growth projects that the company began in 2013, including the expansion of its 9,500-b/d Great Falls, Mont., refinery and a 20,000-b/d grassroots diesel refinery in North Dakota, Calumet said.

The $400-million Montana refinery project, which includes the installation of a new 20,000 b/d-crude unit and a 25,000 b/d-hydrocracker, will double the plant’s capacity and should be completed during first-quarter 2016, according to Calumet.

The company expects its Dakota Prairie refinery project in Dickinson, ND—a 50-50 joint venture with partner MDU Resources Inc.—to be commissioned during fourth-quarter 2014. The refinery, which Calumet and MDU Resources estimated would cost $300 million total, will be completely supplied with locally sourced Bakken crude oil (OGJ Online, Mar. 27, 2013).
