Meridian Energy plots grassroots refinery for Permian basin

Meridian Energy Group let a contract to Winkler Cos. to provide site control for a full-conversion refinery in Winkler County, Tex., in the heart of the Permian basin. The Permian basin refinery will have a throughput capacity of about 60,000 b/d and be modeled after Meridian’s grassroots 49,500-b/sd high-conversion Davis refinery currently under construction in Billings County in the heart of southwestern North Dakota’s Bakken shale region.
