Western Refining is an independent oil refiner and marketer headquartered in El Paso, Texas. As one of the small business refiners in the United States, the company operates primarily in the Southwestern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. Western Refining (WNR) has been publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange since January, 2006.
Our four refineries are located in El Paso, Texas; near Gallup, New Mexico; in Bloomfield, New Mexico (near Farmington); and in Yorktown, Virginia. These refineries have a combined crude oil processing capacity of approximately 235,000 barrels per day. A majority of products produced at these refineries are high-value light products, consisting of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel. All four refineries have truck racks or marketing terminals. The El Paso refinery delivers to a number of other markets by pipeline, and Yorktown has waterborne access and receives and delivers by barge and ship.
Western Refining owns and operates a wholesale division that compliments the refining operations. Through our refineries and these affiliated companies, we serve a broad customer base in Arizona, southern California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, western Texas, Utah, northern Chihuahua, Mexico, and the central East Coast region.
Western owns and operates approximately 160 convenience stores and gas stations located in New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. The company markets under its own brands of Giant, Mustang, and Sundial, plus a number of locations feature the brands of other oil companies. We also license Western branded fuel to other retail stores.
We have invested a significant amount of capital – and will continue to invest – in refinery initiatives that will allow us to continually improve our operations and our commitment to a safe and healthy environment.
Western Refining strives to be a leader in our industry, as well as in the civic and charitable causes important to our communities. We take great pride in the fact that our employees volunteer countless hours in community services and that we, as a company, are actively involved in the things that matter.
