New Refinery Coming to Trenton

KFYR-TV -- The Bakken pumps out hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil per day.
But with only one refinery in the state, most of that oil is sent down to the gulf or to coastal refineries.
But that could soon change. It will be a skimming refinery, meaning it will only produce diesel, which is just what the Bakken needs.
There are around 180 rigs in the Bakken, and in one day, a drilling rig can use anywhere from 25-hundred to 35-hundred gallons of diesel.

The skimming refinery will be about 4 miles west of Trenton on an old beet farm. There will be two pipelines running to the refinery, and 12 docks for trucks to unload oil.

"We will be using Bakken crude. We`re looking at about 8,000 barrels of diesel. Of course there`s 42 gallons per barrel that gives you the gallons that would be available...

New Refinery Coming to Trenton, a new refinery producing only diesel and on an old beet farm.
Use local Bakken skimming crude oil to make diesel for the drilling rigs.
Less transportation cost, less fuel trucks on the roads, the diesel is not exported or removed from the area and the fuel tanks are always full.
Trenton? *North Dakota!*
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

how about setting up more on the East Coast since that's where most fuel is consumed?

There needs to be more refinery capacity, so they can't bottleneck the crude and force prices up.

It is a shame they cannot use some of the natural gas they are burning off during production and drilling, to replace some of the diesel needed. Good they can refine their own oil in place for diesel needed.

Good, and put more supply on the market to drive prices down! Oh, I forgot, refineries do not want to produce an abundance of gasoline because that would lower prices and that would hurt their profits!

At least these pipelines will be relatively short--and refining U.S. crude.

Trenton stinks bad enough. In about 5 years, this thing will be ready to go online and then it will be more excuses why it can't. Typical refinery language
