Based in Columbus, Ohio, Husky Marketing & Supply Company (HMSC) sells most of the commercial products from Husky’s refinery in Lima, Ohio, including gasoline, diesel and jet fuel.
Products refined in United States include:
Benzene is used in the production of other industrial chemicals used to make plastics and resins, and nylon and synthetic fibres. Benzene produced at the Lima Refinery is used to make some types of rubbers, lubricants, dyes, detergents, drugs and pesticides.
BB Mix is primarily a refinery feedstock for making gasoline in refineries with alkylation units. It is used as a blending component with gasoline blendstocks.
Husky's Lima Refinery produces jet fuel in two grades – military and commercial.
Decanted oil (DCO) is a valuable solvent used in the Lima Refinery’s hydrotreating unit for controlling carbon solids.
Husky's Lima Refinery produces approximately 25 percent of the gasoline consumed in Ohio. It also produces diesel fuel.
Petroleum coke is a solid, hard, black residue of almost-pure carbon that remains after heavy oil fractions are cracked to produce lighter hydrocarbons. Husky's Lima refinery produces anode-grade petroleum coke, which is calcined (a thermal process) to remove the volatile fraction to make carbon blocks, and then is used as an anode in the production of aluminium. The coke is transported by truck and railcar to markets.
Husky manages proprietary and third-party volumes of propane, butane, isobutane and other natural gas liquids.
NGL mix is acquired and sold for processing and subsequent sale as specification products (propane and butanes). Sales and purchases of all products are made a spot, monthly or term contract basis.
Propylene is a major commodity in the petrochemicals industry. It is used as a building block in producing polypropylene products ranging from rope to clothing. Propylene is also used in the production of industrial chemicals including acetone, and as a fuel gas in industry.
The majority of the sulphur Husky produces and sells is converted to sulphuric acid (H2SO4), the most common industrial chemical produced in the U.S. Sulphuric acid is mainly used in the production of phosphate fertilizer, in metal leaching applications and the production of various chemicals.
Toluene is a common solvent used to remove paint, silicon sealant, glues and adhesives, and lacquers. It is used in the manufacturing of polyurethane foam and explosives and as a petrochemical feedstock and an octane enhancer. It is used within the Lima refinery to make gasoline.
Transmix is a byproduct of refinery operations. It is created by the mixing of different products, usually gasoline and diesel fuel, during pipeline transportation. At transmix processing plants, it is separated into products such as unleaded gasoline and diesel fuel.
