U.S. Refinery Runs to Decline for First Time in 10 Years

U.S. gross inputs to refineries, also known as refinery runs, have increased each year since 2009, most recently reaching a record high of 17.3M barrels per day (b/d) in 2018. However, based on its monthly refinery run data through May and forecast for the remainder of 2019, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) expects refinery runs to decline and average 17.0M b/d in 2019.

U.S. refinery capacity was at a record high of 18.8M barrels per calendar day as of January 1, 2019. EIA’s annual Refinery Capacity Report shows that U.S. refining capacity will not expand significantly during 2019. EIA surveys refinery capacity annually, so any changes to refinery capacities during a calendar year will not be captured until the next survey at the beginning of the next calendar year.
