CHS Refinery Project Completion Increases Fuel Output by 20 Percent
Tuesday May 27, 10:46 am ET
LAUREL, Mont., May 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — CHS Inc., a leading energy and grain-based foods company, today marked the completion of a $400 million project that increases fuel production at its refinery by more than 20 percent.
Company officials and guests marked the completion of the two-year project at an event held today at the refinery, about 10 miles west of Billings.
“At this time of concern over energy supply, we are proud of this investment — the biggest in CHS history — which means more gasoline and diesel fuel to the agricultural producers and consumers who count on us,” said Leon Westbrock, CHS executive vice president and chief operating officer, Energy. “As a result, we’ll continue to be a reliable supplier of quality fuel products, as we have been for more than seven decades.”
The “Bottoms Upgrade Project” included a 15,000 barrel per day coker, a sulfur recovery unit and upgrades to process units throughout the refinery to incorporate the new production units into the existing refinery. While the refinery’s overall through-put remains rated at 60,000 barrels-per-day, the addition of the coker will increase by over 400,000 gallons per day the volume of gasoline and diesel it produces. In addition, the refinery will produce about 300,000 tons of coke annually.
The refinery project also adds more than 35 new jobs, bringing to over 300 the facility’s total employment.
