Flint Hills Resources will cease refining operations at its North Pole refinery near Fairbanks this spring, the company announced Feb. 4 in a press release.
The extraction unit at the refinery will be shut down on May 1, ending gasoline production. Crude Oil Processing Unit No. 2 will shut down shortly thereafter, depending on operational requirements, but no later than June 1, according to the company.
Flint Hills will continue marketing activities in Interior Alaska, the company said.
