Flint Hills Resources Plans Ingleside Expansion


New storage tanks and loading capability will add capacity by October

Flint Hills Resources announced today plans to expand storage and
outbound crude loading capacity at its storage terminal in Ingleside,
Texas to approximately 380,000 barrels per day.

The project currently consists of construction of four new crude storage
tanks, 60,000 barrels per hour of total loading capability, plus the
associated pumps and piping. The expected in-service date for the
project is October 2019 subject to state permitting approvals. When the
project is completed, Ingleside will have a total crude storage capacity
of approximately 3.5 – 4.0 million barrels.

Currently, the Ingleside terminal utilizes two docks, including one that
supports loading of Suezmax-size vessels. Flint Hills Resources is also
evaluating a separate project that would allow it to load "VLCC" or Very
Large Crude Carrier-size vessels in the future.

In addition to the Ingleside terminal expansion, Flint Hills Resources
plans to build connections to the recently announced crude pipelines
coming from the Permian Basin.
