Our St. Paul Park Refinery (SPPR) occupies approximately 170 acres along the Mississippi River southeast of St. Paul Park, Minnesota and was originally built in 1939.
SPPR is a 102,000 barrel per day cracking facility with operations including crude fractionation, catalytic cracking, hydrotreating, reforming, alkylation and sulfur recovery, as well as hydrogen plant operations. The refinery’s strategic location allows direct access to crude oil. The complexity of refinery operations allows it to process a variety of light, heavy, sweet and sour crudes into higher value refined products.
The refinery primarily processes Canadian crude oil and light sweet crude oil from the Bakken Shale in North Dakota. The broad slate of refined products produced at the refinery includes gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and asphalt, which are then marketed to resellers and consumers primarily throughout the Midwestern United States.
At the Andeavor St. Paul Park Refinery, the safety of our operations, our people and the community is our top priority. To produce the high-octane gasoline required for today’s automobiles, alkylation utilizing hydrofluoric acid (HF) is an established and widely practiced method. In fact, about 50 percent of alkylation units worldwide use HF in their systems. For more than 50 years, St. Paul Park has operated an HF alkylation unit with no impacts to the community.
We strive to make a positive and ongoing impact on the lives of our neighbors with programs and practices that provide meaningful support to the community.
Through volunteer programs and charitable investment, the refinery supports organizations that address vital community needs and issues. We’re proud of our employees who devote their time and dollars to make the community a better place.
