Our refining operations are located in Artesia, New Mexico; Cheyenne, Wyoming; El Dorado, Kansas; Tulsa, Oklahoma and Woods Cross, Utah. Each of the refineries has the complexity to convert discounted, heavy and sour crude oils into a high percentage of gasoline, diesel and other high value refined products. Products are marketed primarily throughout the Mid-Continent, Southwestern and Rocky Mountain regions, which are among the most attractive refined product markets in the United States.
The Cheyenne Refinery is located in Cheyenne, Wyoming and has a crude oil capacity of 52,000 barrels per day with the complexity to convert a wide variety of crude oils into a high percentage of light products. Crude oil is purchased from local producers, including the nearby Niobrara and Bakken formations, and is also imported via the Express Pipeline from Canada.

The El Dorado Refinery is located in El Dorado, Kansas and is one of the largest refineries in the Plains States and Rocky Mountain region with a crude oil capacity of 135,000 barrels per day.
