MDU Resources Group, Inc. And Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. Announce Diesel Refinery Joint Venture

“The development of another oil refinery has been a longtime goal of our state and with this project we are achieving that goal,” Gov. Jack Dalrymple said. “The decision by MDU Resources and Calumet to move forward on a new diesel refinery is good news for North Dakota and the entire nation. This project will be built by the private sector. It will create more jobs, it will help to further diversify our economy and it will increase the region’s supply of diesel fuel. Our Department of Commerce will continue working with MDU and Calumet to move this project forward.”

Goodin and Straumins expressed appreciation for the support this project has received from the state of North Dakota.

“We appreciate the help of the state’s agencies and officials to identify issues and help solve problems that are involved in a complex project such as this,” Goodin said. “We also appreciate North Dakota challenging us with a rigorous permitting process that will help ensure this state-of-the-art facility operates responsibly and safely, and becomes an important contributor to the local and state economy.”

The facility’s engineering and plant design are in the final stages. Westcon has been selected as the general contractor, and Ventech Engineering will be the primary equipment and technology provider. MDU Resources’ construction businesses, Knife River Corporation and MDU Construction Services Group, are among potential subcontractors. Other MDU Resources’ companies involved in the project include Fidelity Exploration and Production Company, which will supply some of the facility’s crude oil; WBI Energy, which will supply natural gas service to operate the facility; and Montana-Dakota Utilities, which will supply the facility’s electricity needs.

MDU Resources Group, Inc., a member of the S&P MidCap 400 index, provides value-added natural resource products and related services that are essential to energy and transportation infrastructure, including regulated utilities and pipelines, exploration and production, and construction materials and services companies.
