Refinery Capacity Report

With Data as of January 1, 2019   |  Release Date:  June 21, 2019   |  Next Release Date: June 19, 2020

Previous Issues

Data series include fuel, electricity, and steam purchased for consumption at refineries; refinery receipts of crude oil by method of transportation; and current and projected capacities for atmospheric crude oil distillation, downstream charge, production, and storage. Respondents operate all operating and idle petroleum refineries (including new refineries under construction) and refineries shut down during the previous year. These refineries are located in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and other U.S. possessions.

The Refinery Capacity Report does not contain working and shell storage capacity data. This data is now being collected twice a year as of March 31 and September 30 on the Form EIA-810, "Monthly Refinery Report", and is now released as a separate report Working and Net Available Shell Storage Capacity.

Note:  The EIA-820 refinery capacity survey was not conducted for January 1, 1996 or January 1, 1998.

The Refinery Capacity Report became a separate product in 2006, which includes tables in PDF format and an individual refinery XLS file.

Individual refinery XLS files from 1994 - 2005 are available from the drop down menu above.

Previous versions of the tables from 1995 - 2004 are available on the Petroleum Supply Annual, Volume 1 Historical page.
