The refining industry experiences some of the highest margins ever seen to little or no margins. Numerous factors influence these swings, including the type of crude oil processed (sweet/sour heavy/light), delivery method, location, and crude oil prices. As always, refiners that maintain safety, improve efficiency, minimize costs, and maximize utilization continue to benefit the most in this very competitive environment.
