Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DK), a diversified energy company with assets in the petroleum refining, marketing and retail industries, today provided an update on the status of operations at its El Dorado, Arkansas and Tyler, Texas refineries.

El Dorado Refinery

As discussed on the Company’s first quarter 2012 conference call, the Company’s El Dorado refinery has operated at reduced throughput rates since May 1, 2012 due to the temporary suspension of crude oil delivered from a supplier’s pipeline. Delek has secured additional feedstocks that should allow the refinery to average total throughput of at least 60,000 barrels per day during both May and June.

Tyler Refinery

The FCC unit at the Tyler refinery was temporarily idled on May 10, 2012 for repairs after experiencing an unsuccessful restart that resulted from a power interruption on May 7, 2012. As a result of the maintenance, the Company expects the refinery’s May crude oil throughput to average between 45,000 and 50,000 barrels per day. The Company expects to resume normal operation by the end of May.
