The El Dorado turnaround was completed in the first quarter of 2014. During the turnaround, the preflash tower project to increase light crude capability by 10,000 barrels per day was completed, along with the replacement of the fluid catalytic cracking reactor.

As a result, the refinery has a capacity to process approximately 80,000 barrels a day of mostly light crude which should result in an asphalt yield of 10 percent or less. This compares to a crude throughput of approximately 66,000 barrels per day with an asphalt yield of approximately 11 percent in calendar year 2013.
