Capacity: 93,500 b/d
Owner: Par Pacific Holdings said on March 3 it was suspending purchases of Russian crude oil for their 93,500 b/d Kapolei, Hawaii, refinery "in light of recent geopolitical events."
"The geopolitical landscape and energy markets are dynamic. We will continually monitor and evaluate our posture on Russian crude over the coming weeks and months," the statement said.
"In the meantime, we are turning to other grades of crude, principally from North and South America, to meet fuel production requirements. As the geopolitical situation evolves, we will work closely with our customers and partners in state government to make prudent decisions in support of energy assurance for Hawaii," according to the statement.
In 2021, the refinery imported 6.9 million barrels of crude from Russia, according to Energy Information Administration data, which was down from the 9 million barrels of crude imported in 2019.
