Canton Refinery

Our Canton refinery is located 60 miles southeast of Cleveland, Ohio, and has a crude oil refining capacity of 93,000 barrels per calendar day (bpcd). In December 2014, the company completed construction of a condensate splitter, which increased the refinery’s capacity to process condensate from the Utica shale region.

The Canton refinery processes sweet and sour crude oils into gasoline, distillates, asphalt, roofing flux, propane, refinery-grade propylene and slurry. Product distribution occurs through pipeline, transport truck and rail.
