The St. Paul Park Refinery occupies approximately 170 acres along the Mississippi River southeast of St. Paul Park, Minnesota, and was originally built in 1939. SPPR is a 103,000 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 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.

Health & Safety at Andeavor
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, SPPR has operated an HF alkylation unit with no impacts to the community.
We are committed to operating our refineries, pipelines, retail stations and other facilities in a manner that promotes the health and safety of our employees, our customers and the communities where we do business. In addition to general safe working practices, our employees receive training in the safe handling and use of refinery chemicals, hazardous wastes and other hazardous materials; emergency response tactics, including firefighting procedures; and the use of emergency response and personal protective equipment.
