HollyFrontier Forced to Temporarily Shut Down Tulsa Refinery Due to Flooding

Reuters, May 23, 2019

On Thursday, HollyFrontier announced that it was temporarily suspending operations at its Tulsa, Oklahoma, refinery as a precaution due to flooding of the Arkansas River.  Over the last week, severe weather has brought heavy rain, which amounted to 6-8 inches by Tuesday in some areas, and resulted in flood warnings in the city of Tulsa. Heavy rains throughout the Midwest region this spring has caused a disruption in typical supply and demand for refined products.
