Delek Cut El Dorado Refinery Run After Exxon Shut Pipeline

May 03, 2012

Delek US Holdings Inc. (DK:US) cut runs at its El Dorado, Arkansas, refinery to 69 percent of capacity after a pipeline that supplies it was shut April 28.

Refinery throughput has been reduced to 55,000 barrels a day, Chief Financial Officer Mark Cox said on a conference call from Delek’s Brentwood, Tennessee, headquarters. Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM:US)’s North Line pipeline supplies El Dorado with Gulf Coast crudes.

The refinery runs about 35,000 barrels a day of West Texas Intermediate-linked crude from other sources, Chief Executive Officer Uzi Yemin said on the same call.

El Dorado has a capacity of 80,000 barrels a day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Delek completed the acquisition (DK:US) of Lion Oil Co., which owned the El Dorado refinery, in October.
