COP Seeks Buyer for Trainer Refinery
Will Permanently Close Pennsylvania Plant in 6 Months if None Found

ConocoPhillips announced last week that it is seeking a buyer for its refinery in Trainer, Pennsylvania, and, if none is found, will permanently close the plant in six months. The oil major, which cited poor economics for processing oil at the refinery for the past several years, has already begun to idle operations.

The sale of the 185,000 bpd refinery and associated pipelines and terminals was announced by ConocoPhillips, an international, integrated energy company operating in more than 30 countries and based in Houston, in a Sept. 27 news release.

The rapid increase in U.S. domestic liquid natural gas production has weakened anticipated LNG import demand in the U.S. and led to significant amounts of LNG being sold to Europe under short-term sales arrangements.
