We're used to it - Motiva Progressing Toward Becoming Largest U.S. Refinery
Motiva Enterprises announced Friday it has made significant progress toward a 325,000 barrel a day expansion at its refinery in Port Arthur. Sue Parsley with Motiva tells KFDM News the company has not made a final decision on the expansion and could still decide against it, but if it happens, the Motiva refinery in Port Arthur would become the largest in the country.
We have more refineries down here than you'd believe anyways. I wonder if this is the smartest investment though, as that plant got something like four feet of storm surge during Rita. Then again, it was back online in a month. A lot of 'em in Louisiana and Missisippi still aren't.
