United Refining Company has temporarily reduced its Warren, Pennsylvania crude thruput until a crude line operated by Enbridge’s Lakehead System in Kalamazoo, Michigan can be repaired.

United Refining’s supply group is evaluating alternative crude and product sourcing options. The company will continue to assess the situation as more information becomes available.

United Refining Company’s crude supply is substantially all Canadian and delivered to Warren through the Enbridge pipeline system to the Company’s crude oil terminal in West Seneca, New York.
