Alon Refinery Could be Expanded in Big Spring

BIG SPRING, TX (KWES) -

The Alon Refinery in Big Spring could be getting bigger.

It's all because they keep producing more and more transportation fuel.

Right now, the refinery rolls out 73,000 barrels a day.

One barrel can produce 85 percent of fuel.

Officials say they are conducting a study that look at the increasing capacity for their units.

That study could take up to six months.

Then a second study will be done to look at the actual expansion of the modification to the units.

We're told it will be two to three years before any actual expansion is done.
