CountryMark to refine more fuel

April 3, 2008

Indianapolis-based CountryMark Cooperative Inc. plans to boost fuel production 12 percent when a $20 million expansion of its Mount Vernon refinery is completed in May.

The additional 3,000 barrels a day will amount to 45 million gallons a year.

The southern Indiana refinery is supplied by oil from the Illinois Basin, an underground field that also touches Indiana and Kentucky.

CountryMark, a farmer-owned co-op that sold its animal feed and crop supply businesses in the late 1990s following heavy losses, specializes in refining and distributing diesel fuel.
