In Texas, Global Clean Energy Holdings bought the Alon Bakersfield Refinery in California from Delek US Holdings for $40 million cash. Primoris Services Corporation announced ARB Industrial was awarded a $200 million contract for the engineering, procurement and construction of a renewable diesel facility at the refinery.
The retooled facility will produce renewable diesel from organic feedstocks such as vegetable oils. Fuel produced at the facility will be available to be blended into transportation fuel, reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions.
The scope includes upgrades to the existing facility as well as civil, mechanical, structural, and electrical work. Other activities include balance of plant engineering and some procurement.
ARB Industrial is partnering with OnQuest and Primoris Design & Construction to perform certain engineering scope.
The initial phase of work and mobilization has commenced and the entire project is anticipated to be completed in the third quarter of 2022.
