Company promises competitve oil pricing

(Continued)

Somerset —

  Construction will take three months after the design phase is complete. The project is expected to be finished next spring. Additional specialized work will be bid to local and regional professionals.
CRC is expected to shortly take delivery of a newly constructed reactor designed to replace an existing reactor. This will enable the refinery to make ultra-low sulfur on-road diesel (ULSD). The reactor should be in place by late November and is expected to be operating by early December.
 The former Somerset Refinery, purchased by Continental Refining in December 2011, supports local crude oil producers with a dramatic decrease in transportation costs along with favorable crude rates and rapid payment cycles, the company said. 
  Continental Refining Company is one of two crude oil refineries in Kentucky and one of only 150 refineries in the United States. It is the closest refinery for crude oil producers within a 170-miles radius.
  Refining operations began in January, processing crude oil supplied by Sunoco Partners Marketing & Terminal LP as well as regional producers. Now operating at 65 percent capacity, the plant, at full production, can refine 5,500 barrels a day.
