IMO however I don't see building refineries as being a high priority item for the oil companies....I mean they're making money hand over fist right now aren't they? Why would they spend money to reduce their profit?
As for Cochise’s original question, I don’t know for sure.
I’d have to Google it up myself.
Though if they were allowed to build new refineries they’d be able to take advantage of advances in technology that could stream line the process and increase profitability.
