Located four miles west of Dickinson, North Dakota on approximately 318 acres, the Dickinson Refinery is the first new refinery in the U.S. to be built in over 30 years. To improve our environmental footprint throughout North Dakota, refinery uses recycled water from the City of Dickinson’s wastewater treatment plant and utilizes state-of-the-art emission control technology. The Dickinson Refinery is also working on a capital improvement project that will enable the refinery to process renewable feedstocks, including soybean oil and distillers corn oil, into renewable diesel fuel.
Recognized as a good corporate citizen in North Dakota, Andeavor makes an effort to support the Dickinson community through grants to and partnerships with charitable and non-profit organizations. 2017 community investments in the state totaled $1M.
The refinery has a capacity of 20,000 barrels per day (bpd) and primarily processes domestic crude oil from North Dakota delivered by pipeline. The facility manufactures ultra-low sulfur diesel, naphtha and resid, which is marketed to local customers and utilized for further processing in Andeavor’s integrated value chain system.
