Marathon Petroleum deep into RD conversion projects

February 4, 2021 |

In Ohio, Platts reports that Marathon Petroleum is running full steam ahead on its two renewable diesel conversion projects as it embraces cleaner fuels to fill market demand, primarily in California. The Dickinson, North Dakota facility began producing renewable diesel this quarter and should reach its nameplate capacity of 12,000 bpd by the end of Q1, with most of the fuel expected for the California market. Closer to its demand source, the proposed conversion of the Martinez, California refinery is awaiting permits and in the final engineering stage. The 48,000 bpd renewable diesel facility should reach full capacity by the end of 2023 but will already produce 17,000 bpd by H2 2022.
