Document Description
The proposed project would allow the Valero Benicia Refinery (Refinery) access to additional North American-sourced crude oil for delivery to the Refinery by railroad. The project would involve the installation and modification of Refinery non-process equipment that would allow the Refinery to receive a portion of its crude oil deliveries by railcar replacing equal quantities of crude currently being delivered to the Refinery by marine vessel. Valero intends to replace up to 70,000 barrels per day of the crude oil currently supplied to the Refinery by marine vessel with an equivalent amount of crude oil transported by railcars.
