Petro-Hunt conducts our crude oil refining operations on the downstream side through a stand-alone entity, Placid Refining Company, L.L.C. The refinery is strategically located in Port Allen, Louisiana, across the Mississippi River from Baton Rouge.
The location provides access to three common carrier pipelines, direct pipeline access to the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve, and on-site company-owned marine docks for receiving crude oil supplies. Commissioned in 1975, the refinery is one of the newest in the country. It is truly a state-of-the-art 75,000 BOPD facility, operating with an on-site natural gas co-generation system that provides a significant portion of the company’s steam and electrical requirements.
The refinery produces transportation fuels that are distributed across the Southeastern United States, from Louisiana to Virginia. The refinery also produces military jet fuel that is used in the United States’ defense efforts.

Petro-Hunt is owner and operator of the Little Knife Gas Processing Plant located west of Killdeer, North Dakota. The Little Knife Gas Plant processes gas produced from the Little Knife Field, as well as gas gathered from third parties who operate oil and gas wells in the Williston Basin area, within McKenzie, Billings and Dunn counties.
Construction on the plant began in the fall of 1977 and was owned by the Gulf Oil Corporation. The plant was acquired by Petro-Hunt in July 1992 from Gulf’s successor, Chevron. The plant has been upgraded to use state-of-the-art equipment.
The plant currently processes approximately 18 MMCFD, consisting of both sweet and sour gas and has the capacity to process 27 MMCFD. Little Knife is a natural gas processing facility consisting of gas sweetening, liquid extraction, sulfur recovery and tail gas incineration. Products from the plant consist of natural gas (methane and ethane), propane, butane, natural gasoline liquids and elemental sulfur.
