United Refining Co. has temporarily reduced its Warren, Pa., crude processing until a crude line operated by Enbridge’s Lakehead System in Kalamazoo, Mich., can be repaired.
On July 26, a leak was detected in the Line 6B pipeline on Enbridge’s Lakehead System in Michigan and was subsequently shut down. In response to the partial reduction of its crude deliveries, the company will be temporarily reducing crude run rates by approximately 35%.
United Refining Co.’s supply group is evaluating alternative crude and product sourcing options and plans to further assess the situation as more information becomes available.
United Refining Co.’s crude supply is substantially all Canadian and delivered to Warren through the Enbridge pipeline system to the company’s crude oil terminal in West Seneca, N.Y.
