Delta Air Lines' refinery in Pennsylvania gets its first shipment of ND oil

BISMARCK — Gov. Jack Dalrymple says Delta Air Lines' Philadelphia-area refinery got its first shipment of North Dakota crude oil this week.

The airline plans to make jet fuel from North Dakota oil at the factory.

Delta bought the idled refinery from a division of ConocoPhillips for $150 million. Delta has said it expects the refinery to save about $300 million annually in airline fuel costs.

Delta announced earlier this month that it will begin twice-daily flights between Dickinson and Minneapolis-St. Paul beginning June 10.
