This was formerly Citgo Asphalt Refinery, until March of 2008, when NuStar Energy L.P. of Texas purchased Citgo Asphalt Refining Company’s assets and operations. The Savannah facility produces over 30,000 barrels of asphalt a day and is the only asphalt refinery and producer on the Southeast seaboard. NuStar’s purchase included another refinery in NJ and 3 other asphalt terminals.
When you drive by, notice the art work on the side of three of the tanks. First is a bald eagle, spread out and about to attack. The second is a marsh scene with some waterfowl. The third, is a representation of the state of Georgia, with Savannah highlighted.
