Refinery Overview
The Billings refinery is located near the Yellowstone River and is a few blocks from downtown Billings, the largest city in
. The refinery primarily processes a mixture of Canadian light crudes, and heavy Canadian high-sulfur and medium-sulfur crudes. These crudes are delivered by the company-operated Glacier pipeline system, which is connected to third-party systems. A delayed coker converts heavy, high-sulfur vacuum residue into higher-value light oils. Gasoline demand is highly seasonal, with peak demand in the summer driving season. Distillate fuel demand is more constant, but generally increases due to seasonal agricultural and mining activity spring through fall, in addition to normal year-round on-road and railroad demand. There is little home heating oil demand in the Billings marketing area, as this need is primarily met with propane, natural gas, and electric power.
Finished petroleum products from the refinery are delivered by the company-operated Yellowstone, Seminoe, and Pioneer pipelines, and by rail and truck to markets in Montana,
, and
south dakota
. Supplying these geographically distinct markets presents a special challenge due to the variation in gasoline octane and summer vapor pressure specifications from region to region.
