Refiners of Quality Specialty Hydrocarbon Products
A Commitment to Excellence in Specialty Products
When Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. was founded in 1916, it was our goal to make the highest quality naphthenic specialty oils available. Since that time, we’ve devoted ourselves to making this goal a reality. The refining of petroleum has come a long way since 1916. There have been many advances—better processing methods, improved equipment and chemical discoveries. Throughout, we’ve stayed at the forefront of technology. Our equipment is modernized and our operations are diverse and efficient. Operating three refineries in Northwest Louisiana and a terminal in Burnham, IL Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P.'s capacity has grown notably in the last decade. But it takes more than high technology to produce an excellent product. Our people are committed to the constant improvement of our products. We do more than just test our oils, we continuously manufacture quality into our products and service. Our quality processes, our dedicated employees, and optimum technologies combine to give our customers the superior products they require and deserve.
Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. produces a full line of naphthenic and paraffinic oils as well as aliphatic solvents and paraffin and microcrystalline waxes. Our Princeton, Louisiana refinery produces a premium line of Naphthenic Base and Process Oils as well as diverse products such as refrigeration oils, shock absorber oils and electrical insulation oils. Considered our flagship refinery, Princeton provides both truck and rail car service throughout the country.
Acquired in 2001, Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P.'s Shreveport facility is a complete specialty refinery. Shreveport is successful in its ability to produce paraffinic base oils and fully refined paraffin waxes. Shreveport also produces both Naphthenic and Paraffinic Bright Stocks.
Shreveport was a welcomed addition to the Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. family. Synergies abound as Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. owns and operates all active refining assets in Northwest Louisiana. The future is bright at Shreveport as many new products are in various levels of development.
