Background:     

The Mandan refinery started operation on October 2, 1954, with an initial crude oil refining capacity of 29,000 barrels a day. The facility refines crude oil received by pipeline from the Williston Basin in western North Dakota. Currently, Mandan processes about 60,000 barrels of primarily sweet (low sulfur) crude oil per day. Approximately 98% of the crude oil run at the facility is domestic and 2% Canadian.

Facility Description:    
Currently, Mandan processes about 60,000 barrels of primarily sweet (low sulfur) crude oil per day. Approximately 98% of the crude oil run at the facility is domestic and 2% Canadian. There are 10 process units at the site, including a crude unit, vapor recovery unit, polymerization unit, a reformer, a fluid catalytic cracker, an alkylation unit, and a distillate desulfurization unit as well as additional support facilities. Mandan is configured as a single train, sweet crude refinery and produces gasoline, jet fuel, distillates, and propane and butane. Refined product mix is on average 53% gasoline, 36% distillates (diesel and jet fuel), 2% propane and butane, 7% is used as refinery fuel, and 2% is residual fuel. The "North 40," Mandan's award-winning wastewater treatment system and wildlife conservation area, occupies 640 acres, or about two-thirds, of the refinery property. Mandan has 210 employees Most refined products are shipped via pipeline to eastern North Dakota and Minnesota. Products are distributed from terminals at Jamestown, Moorhead, Sauk Centre, Spring Valley, and the Twin Cities. Other products are shipped by rail and through the truck loading facilities at the refinery. The Mandan refinery was originally part of the Standard Oil Company of Indiana; which later became Amoco Corporation. Amoco Corporation merged with British Petroleum in 1999 forming BP Amoco Corporation. In April 2001 the company name was changed to BP. Retail assets in North Dakota include twelve company-owned/dealer operated gasoline stations, and 80 Amoco branded sites (73 in North Dakota and 7 in Minnesota) served by 31 jobbers (wholesale distributors).
