Delta Airlines Cuts Oil Refinery Production by 40,000 bpd

Reuters, March 26, 2020

Delta Airlines is reducing production at its 190,000 barrel-per-day refinery in Trainer, Pennsylvania by 40,000 bpd, according to a source familiar with plant operations.

The refinery, owned by Delta Airlines unit Monroe Energy, is operating with about two dozen essential staff, according to a source last week. The refinery’s management is working on a rotating basis. There are no current plans to shut down the refinery, according to a source.

Last Thursday, Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf ordered all businesses in the state that are not “life sustaining” must shut down, or face strict penalties, as the number of people infected by the novel coronavirus increases.
