Flint Hills North Pole Plant Restarts, Receiving Oil

Jan. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Flint Hills Resources LLC is receiving crude at its North Pole refinery in Alaska after the Trans Alaska Pipeline System started, and the plant is back in operation, Jake Reint, a company spokesman, said in a telephone interview.

“The Alaska refinery was down during the outage,” he said. The 800-mile (1,287-kilometer) pipeline, running south from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez, had been closed since the leak at the pump station on Jan. 8, and was restarted late yesterday.

The company provided fuel to customers during the outage, Reint said. The North Pole refinery can process 220,000 barrels of crude oil a day, according to the Flint Hills website.
