Production underway at refinery


Somerset —

Continental Refining Company (CRC) purchased the refinery a little more than a year ago. It has secured a contract with Sonoco Partners Marketing and Terminals, LP, that will assure a consistent supply of crude oil.
Haseotes said CRC is attracting local producers.
“Everyday we are picking up local crude and adding more,” he assured.
CRC produces several products including 87 octane (regular) gasoline, kerosene, diesel and No. 4 and No. 6 (residual) heating oils.
At full capacity, the refinery in a year can produce 23 million gallons of gasoline, 6 million gallons of kerosene, 21 million gallons of diesel fuel and 30 million gallons of heating oils.
Shorey listed the following regional vendors and others supporting CRC and its operation: Boswell Crane, C&I Engineering, Citizens National Bank, Dal-R’s, ETA Engineering, Huntington Testing, Industrial Psychologists, Modern Security, R&S Electric, Congressman Hal Rogers and staff, Precision Services, Pritchard Electric, Southern Kentucky Economic Development, Sunoco Partners Marketing & Terminals, LP, and Tri-America.
