North Dakota oil refiner seeks to create new diesel fuel
The Associated Press - July 17, 2017

DICKINSON, N.D. - A crude oil refiner in North Dakota is studying the possibility of turning vegetable oil into fuel.

The Bismarck Tribune  reports Tesoro Refinery is planning to implement an 8,000-barrel-per-day diesel hydrotreater to process soy or distillers corn oil into renewable diesel. The North Dakota Industrial Commission has granted the company a $500,000 grant to help cover the project's $3.5 million cost.

The project will use 16,800 gallons per day of vegetable oils to create a 5 percent renewable diesel mix. It will also provide an added market for regional oil seed processing facilities.

The diesel mix is expected to be marketed in North Dakota by the end of 2017.
