Our Dickinson refinery is located four miles west of Dickinson, North Dakota. The refinery has a crude oil capacity of 19,000 barrels per calendar day (bpcd), The Dickinson refinery primarily processes domestic crude oil from North Dakota and manufactures ultra-low sulfur diesel and gasoline blendstocks, which are distributed by truck and rail. 

MPC plans to convert this refinery into a 12,000 bpcd, 100 percent renewable diesel facility, which will process refined soy oil and other organically derived feedstocks, by December 2020.
