P66 Billings Refinery Begins Major Turnaround

Billings Gazette, April 27, 2017

Phillips 66's 66,000 bpd refinery in Billings, Montana is currently undergoing a massive turnaround, with plans for major maintenance, unit replacements, and upgrades to enable it to process more heavy crude oil. The turnaround will bring in about 2,500 workers during its peak and cost P66 several hundred million dollars, according to Ryan Wegner, the refinery’s finance and public affairs manager. Included in the refinery overhaul is replacing the facility's fluid catalytic cracker and completing the Vacuum Improvement Project, which will allow the refinery to process more heavy Canadian crude. The refinery is expected to come back online by June.
