Refining & Marketing

Refining and marketing is a segment of the energy industry that adds significantly to the value chain.

There were hundreds of refineries dotted across Oklahoma during the early part of the 20th century, but because of major changes – industry consolidation and environmental regulatory considerations to name just two – there are only a handful remaining in the state. Two of them are in Tulsa. These days, Tulsa’s remaining refineries have consolidated ownership, but are still an integral part of the region’s diverse energy mix. The city is also home to crude oil marketing, as well as wholesale and retail fuel distributorships, and one of the best-known regional players in the fuel/convenience store industry.

HollyFrontier Corp. is one of the largest independent petroleum refiners in the US with operations throughout the mid-continent, southwestern, and Rocky Mountain regions.  Subsidiaries of HollyFrontier Corp. produce and market gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, asphalt, heavy products, and specialty lubricant products.  HollyFrontier's Tulsa Refinery has a crude oil capacity of 125,000 barrels per day and primarily processes sweet crude oils.  HollyFrontier's Tulsa operations maintains a staff of 595 employees.
