Refining capacity in the US increases slightly

At the beginning of 2014 in the US, there were 139 operating refineries and three idle refineries with total atmospheric crude oil distillation capacity (ACDU) of 17.9 million bpd (MMbpd), a 101,000-bpd increase in capacity from January 1, 2013. In 2013, four refineries changed ownership, continuing the trend of several sales each year. Valero Energy remains the largest US refinery, with total ACDU capacity of more than 1.9 MMbpd. Exxon Mobil is second at almost 1.9 MMbpd. With the recent purchase of the Texas City, Texas, refinery from BP, Marathon Petroleum became the third-largest US refiner, with a capacity of 1.7 MMbpd.
