The Borger Refinery is in Borger, Texas, about 50 miles northeast of Amarillo. It’s owned by WRB Refining LP, a 50/50 partnership between Phillips 66 and Cenovus Energy, and operated by Phillips 66. The refinery processes primarily medium sour crude oil and NGL delivered through pipelines from West Texas, the Texas Panhandle and Canada. Borger has a gross NGL fractionation capacity of 22,500 BPD.
Borger has two fluid catalytic cracking units, alkylation, delayed coking, hydrodesulfurization and naphtha reforming. This enables it to produce a high percentage of transportation fuels such as gasoline, diesel and aviation fuels, as well as petroleum coke, NGL and solvents. Pipelines move refined products to West Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and the Midcontinent region.
