Navajo Refinery

The Navajo refinery, located in Artesia, New Mexico, operates in conjunction with a refining facility in Lovington, New Mexico and processes sweet and sour Permian crude oil. The refinery has a crude oil capacity of 100,000 barrels per day, serving markets in the southwestern United States, including New Mexico, Arizona and West Texas. In 2022, construction was completed on a Pre-treatment Unit (PTU) and Renewable Diesel Unit (RDU) at the Artesia facility. The PTU provides feedstock flexibility, mitigating single feedstock risk and generating value through the use of lower priced unrefined soybean oil and lower carbon intensity waste feedstock such as animal fats and distillers corn oil. The 9,000 barrels-per-day RDU upgrades the renewable feedstock refined by the PTU into a hydrocarbon, high-value renewable diesel that has 50% to 80% less net greenhouse gas emissions and is chemically equivalent to petroleum diesel.
