Borger Refinery

There are more jobs to go around in Borger thanks to a new refinery in town. Friday the W.R.B. refinery welcomed area residents to learn more about the clean fuels project.

The facility takes crude oil from as far as Canada and produces diesel while reducing emissions of sulfur dioxide. More than 23 new jobs have been created over the last few months at the refinery.

"We can use this project to access the crude oil in Canada. It will be more abundant in the future relative to the existing grades of crude oil," says Brian Lever, manager of the Borger refinery. 

More than 700 people work at the refinery all together. Lever says he expects that number to increase as they add onto the capabilities at the refinery.
