Minnesota refinery close to opening the spigots on 50,000bpd expansion

Pine Bend refinery located in Minnesota is nearly ready to open the spigots to its nearly completed refinery upgrade.

The story from TwinCities.com:

Sometime this fall, Pine Bend refinery in
Rosemount, Minnesota’s largest refinery and its biggest source of
gasoline, will get significantly larger.
Owned by Wichita, Kan.-based Flint Hills Resources, the
sprawling maze of pipes, tanks and emission stacks that sits off U.S.
52 will crack open the taps on a $200 million expansion it has been
nursing along for the past several years.
The expansion will increase Pine Bend’s refining capacity by
about 50,000 barrels of oil a day, boosting production from 280,000
barrels to 330,000 barrels daily.
With each barrel holding 42 gallons able to produce 19.6
gallons of gasoline on average, the boost translates to a potential
980,000 gallons of increased gasoline production a day out of the
Rosemount refinery.

Could it get any better? Finally the higher gasoline costs are bringing increased capacity!
