Delek US Holdings Provides Operational Update on Tyler & El Dorado Refineries

BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 15, 2012-- Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DK), a diversified energy company with assets in the petroleum refining, marketing and retail industries, today provided an update on the status of operations at its El Dorado, Arkansas and Tyler, Texas refineries.

El Dorado Refinery

As discussed on the Company’s first quarter 2012 conference call, the Company’s El Dorado refinery has operated at reduced throughput rates since May 1, 2012 due to the temporary suspension of crude oil delivered from a supplier’s pipeline. Delek has secured additional feedstocks that should allow the refinery to average total throughput of at least 60,000 barrels per day during both May and June.

Tyler Refinery

The FCC unit at the Tyler refinery was temporarily idled on May 10, 2012 for repairs after experiencing an unsuccessful restart that resulted from a power interruption on May 7, 2012. As a result of the maintenance, the Company expects the refinery’s May crude oil throughput to average between 45,000 and 50,000 barrels per day. The Company expects to resume normal operation by the end of May.

Morgan Stanley Refining Corporate Access Day

President and CEO Uzi Yemin and other members of executive management will meet with various investors on May 16, 2012 and will participate in the Morgan Stanley Refining Corporate Access Day in New York on May 17, 2012.

Delek US’ latest investor presentation will be provided at the conference and an electronic copy of this presentation is currently available in the “Investors” section of the Delek US website at http://www.DelekUS.com.
