BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Nov. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:DK) (“Delek US”) today commented on the recent outage on the Colonial System and its impact to Delek US. This was a tragic event and our thoughts and prayers are with those that have been affected. Delek’s inland refineries are not located along the Colonial Pipeline system and do not sell directly into that system or the U.S. Gulf Coast market. In past outages on the Colonial Pipeline, Delek US was able to substantially support its retail network with its logistics footprint, while benefiting from an improved margin environment in its overall business segments as a result of the market volatility.
