The characteristics of Canadian crude require specialized refinery equipment and processes and the Joliet Refinery was designed with this purpose in mind.
Today the refinery is equipped to handle 250,000 barrels of crude per day, producing about 9 million gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel every day. That daily production is enough to drive an average car around the world more than 7,000 times. These fuels and other refinery products are transported from the refinery to consumers primarily across the Midwest. The refinery uses state-of-the-art technology to process crude safely, reliably and efficiently.
