About Western Refining
Western Refining is dedicated to fueling the lives of our customers, by supplying them with products that move them, fly them, feed them, and make their lives better.
We’re an independent oil refiner and marketer, headquartered in El Paso, Texas, while operating mostly in the southwestern and western United States, and the upper Midwest. Western Refining (WNR) has been publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange since January 2006.
Western Refining owns and operates three refineries with a total crude oil throughput capacity of approximately 246,000 barrels per day (bpd) producing primarily high-value light products such as gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel. In addition to our 131,000 bpd refinery in El Paso, Texas, we own and operate a 25,000 bpd refinery near Gallup, New Mexico and a 90,500 bpd refinery in St. Paul Park, Minnesota.
These refineries and our wholesale line of business, which supplies a wide range of fuels, lubricants, and automotive chemicals, are how we fuel the lives of millions of people in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, South Dakota, western Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin, and northern Chihuahua, Mexico.
We also fuel the lives of our customers through 260 convenience stores and gas stations located in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas marketed under the brands of Giant and Howdy's, and 169 convenience stores and 114 franchised convenience stores, under the SuperAmerica brand, primarily in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Western Refining, Inc. also owns the general partner and approximately 61% of the limited partnership interest in Western Refining Logistics, LP (NYSE:WNRL).
In November 2013, WNR acquired the general partner and approximately 38% of the limited partnership interest in Northern Tier Energy LP (NYSE:NTI), which owned and operated refining and transportation assets, and supported retail convenience stores.
In December 2015, WNR entered into an agreement with NTI to which it would acquire all of NTI’s outstanding common units not already owned by WNR and its subsidiaries.
When WNR closed its merger with NTI on June 23, 2016, NTI units were no longer traded on the NYSE and it became an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Western Refining, Inc.
WNRL is principally a fee-based, growth-oriented master limited partnership formed by Western Refining, Inc. (NYSE: WNR) to own, operate, develop and acquire terminals, storage tanks, pipelines and other logistics assets related to the terminalling, transportation and storage of crude oil and refined products. Headquartered in El Paso, Texas, Western Refining Logistics, LP's assets include approximately 685 miles of pipelines, approximately 8.2 million barrels of active storage capacity, distribution of wholesale petroleum products and crude oil trucking.
And we are fueling our continued growth with substantial investments in our refining capabilities, our distribution network, and our operations, while always maintaining our strong commitment to safety and a healthy environment. We are just as committed to serving the communities where our Company and our employees are active, involved members. We encourage our employees to participate, to give back, and to make a positive difference by enhancing the local life experience. It’s another important way, Western Refining is fueling our lives.
