The Valero Ardmore Refinery is located in Oklahoma, approximately 100 miles south of Oklahoma City. The refinery predominantly receives Permian Basin and Cushing-sourced crude oil via third-party pipelines. Refined petroleum products are transported via rail, trucks and the Magellan pipeline system.

The refinery has gone through numerous upgrades since its purchase by Valero in 2001. It has been continuously modernized over the years with the objective of processing light sweet to heavier, sour crudes while maintaining a high product yield, establishing the refinery as a leader in the production of clean-burning fuels, especially in the Oklahoma region.
