Husky's U.S. refining operations process different types of crude oil from various sources. The Lima, Ohio Refinery processes light sweet crude oil and the Toledo, Ohio Refinery processes approximately 50 percent heavy crude oil feedstock.
The Husky Lima (Ohio) Refinery produces gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, residual fuels and petrochemical feedstocks. The Refinery produces approximately two billion gallons of refined petroleum products annually, including approximately 25 percent of the gasoline consumed in the state of Ohio.
Refinery operations are capital intensive and highly automated. The refinery is designed to operate 24/7 with a scheduled maintenance shutdown every five years.
The Refinery continually looks at ways to increase the flexibility of the crudes it runs, the products it makes and the markets it accesses.
Husky has 50 percent ownership in the BP-operated refinery in Toledo, Ohio, which converts crude oil into products such as gasoline and diesel fuels, aviation fuels, propane, kerosene and asphalt.
Husky and BP have two 50/50 partnerships, a Canadian oil sands partnership operated by Husky and the Toledo Refinery, operated by BP. The Sunrise Energy Project is combining the production of bitumen with existing refining. This joint venture is an innovative, efficient North American energy solution that represents a responsible approach to resource stewardship.
Husky plans to reposition the refinery to accommodate Sunrise production as its primary feedstock. The Continuous Catalyst Regeneration Reformer Project commissioned in 2013 improves the refinery’s efficiency and competitiveness by reducing energy consumption and lowering operating costs.
The refinery continues to advance a multi-year program to improve operational integrity and plant performance while reducing operating costs and environmental impacts.
