Interline Resources’ NorthCut Refinery Begins Operations
Interline Resources, which owns 75% stake in NorthCut Refining, has announced that the refinery has begun operations. The refinery is located 20 miles north of Douglas, Wyoming in the Powder River Basin.
The refinery has been designed to make use of 5,000 barrels per day of local crude oil supplies and to provide products needed in local markets.
A spokesman for Interline Resources, said: "The first deliveries of crude oil to the refinery site began on October 11, 2008. This has been a long-awaited event for the NorthCut team.
"Difficulty in obtaining operating credit and delays in securing a gas line connection necessary for furnace operation put us behind schedule, but we are now postured to see production results."
