CRC introduces new marine market product


Somerset —

Haseotes continues, “We realize it is a challenge to process transmix and we welcome that challenge with the most advanced technology in the industry. Having our Transmix Compliance Plan approved by the Environmental Protection Agency would allow us to reuse fuels that would usually be discarded, help prevent bottlenecks in the fuel distribution system and strengthen U.S. energy capacity.”
Continental Refining Company, LLC U.S. Refinery #5113, is an independently owned crude oil refinery located on 93 acres in Somerset, Ky., along with 15 modern tanker trailers for regional transportation. Purchased in December 2011, the company supports local crude oil producers with a dramatic decrease in transportation costs along with favorable crude rates and rapid payment cycles.  The refinery added 43 jobs in Somerset, KY with an estimated 200 indirect jobs to be created in the region. There will be $60 million in upgrades over the next five years. 
Continental Refining Company (“CRC”) is one of only 150 refineries in the United States and is the closest refinery for crude oil producers within a 170-miles radius. Located on 93 acres in Somerset, Ky. CRC is adjacent to intermodal rail and close to barge facilities for rapid shipping.  CRC also has a trucking fleet for gathering operations. Refining operations began in January 2013 when CRC began processing crude oil supplied by Sunoco Partners Marketing & Terminal LP as well as regional producers.  CRC welcomes additional regional crude oil producers as supply is expanded.  For additional background information please visit
