Husky and Cenovus Energy combined to create a stronger, more resilient energy company in January 2021. Based in Dublin, Ohio, Husky Marketing and Supply Company (HMSC) is now part of the Cenovus group of companies and oversees the sale, marketing and logistics activities for production at Cenovus’s refineries in Lima and Toledo, Ohio as well as Superior, Wisconsin.
HMSC sells gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel across the Midwestern United States with distribution outlets in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and Pennsylvania. For more information on specific terminal locations with HMSC products, please see the Terminals page.
Gasoline and Diesel Fuel
Lima Refinery produces approximately 25 percent of the gasoline consumed in the state of Ohio. Cenovus sells both conventional and ethanol blended gasoline grades, and diesel fuels for road use and home heating.
Commercial and Military-Grade Jet Fuel
Lima Refinery has the capability to produce Commercial (Jet A/Jet A1) and Military (JP8) grade aviation fuels.
Benzene is used in the production of other industrial chemicals that make plastics and resins, and nylon and synthetic fibres. Benzene produced at the Lima Refinery is used to make some types of rubbers, lubricants, dyes, detergents, drugs and pesticides.
Butane and Butylenes (BB) Mix
BB Mix is primarily a feedstock in refineries with alkylation units for making gasoline. It is used as a blending component with gasoline blendstocks.
Decanted oil (DCO) is a valuable solvent used in the Lima Refinery’s hydrotreating unit for controlling carbon solids.
Petroleum coke is a solid residue of almost-pure carbon that remains after heavy oil fractions are cracked to produce lighter hydrocarbons. The Lima refinery produces anode-grade petroleum coke, which is calcined (a thermal process) to remove the volatile fraction to make carbon blocks, and then is used as an anode in the production of aluminum. The coke is transported by truck and railcar to markets.
Propane, Butane, Isobutane and other Natural Gas Liquids
Cenovus manages proprietary and third-party volumes of propane, butane, isobutane and other natural gas liquids.
NGL mix is acquired and sold for processing and subsequent sale as specification products (propane and butanes). Sales and purchases of all products are made on a spot, monthly or term contract basis.
Propylene is a major commodity in the petrochemicals industry. It is used as a building block in producing polypropylene products ranging from rope to clothing. Propylene is also used in the production of industrial chemicals including acetone, and as a fuel gas in industry.
The majority of the sulfur Cenovus produces and sells is converted to sulfuric acid (H2SO4), the most common industrial chemical produced in the U.S. Sulfuric acid is mainly used in the production of phosphate fertilizer, in metal leaching applications and the production of various chemicals
Toluene is a common solvent used to remove paint, silicon sealant, glues and adhesives, and lacquers. It is used in the manufacturing of polyurethane foam and explosives, and as a petrochemical feedstock and an octane enhancer. It is used within the Lima Refinery to make gasoline.
Transmix is a byproduct of refinery operations. It is created by mixing different products, usually gasoline and diesel fuel, during pipeline transportation. At transmix processing plants, it is separated into products such as unleaded gasoline and diesel fuel.
