Monroe Energy closed on the $180 Million purchase deal from on July 22nd and 3 days later Superior had turnaround crews onsite (which is a maintenance procedure basically restoring, optimizing and checking the integrity of the facility and its operations).

In the end, Delta hopes the deal will lower its fuel costs, which reached nearly $12 billion last year, the largest expenditure on its balance sheet, while also putting 400 people back to work.

In its day, the old refinery, located on the Delaware River in Trainer, PA about 10 miles southwest of downtown Philadelphia, had a crude oil processing capacity of 185,000 barrels per day and processed mainly light, low-sulfur crude oil.
