More than 160,000 barrels of crude oil can be processed at the Husky Lima Refinery each day. But, in an effort to stay competitive, officials are now exploring $300 million in modifications at the plant so employees can process what's known as heavy crude oil.
"Today, we're mainly a light oil refinery. This would allow us to supplement with some lower cost, heavier oil," said Roy Warnock, V.P. and general manager at the Lima Refinery.
