The owner of a small crude oil refinery in western North Dakota is proposing to convert the facility to process vegetable oil instead of petroleum to produce renewable diesel.

Andeavor, formerly known as Tesoro, plans to export the renewable diesel to California, where the product is in high demand. 

Andeavor has applied for a permit from the North Dakota Department of Health to convert the Dickinson Refinery to a facility that would process locally produced soybean oil and other renewable feedstocks.

The renewable diesel plant would be a first-of-its-kind facility for North Dakota as well as Andeavor.
