The Wynnewood refinery is for sale again, only about six months after it was acquired by Texas-based CVR Energy Inc.

The Wynnewood refinery can handle up to 70,000 barrels of crude a day, turning it into gasoline, diesel fuel, military jet fuel, solvents and asphalt.

Badgley said the refinery is outside Wynnewood's city limits, but it does purchase water from the city.

She said it remains an important part of the community.

“We still want it here. It's just a part of our lives,” Badgley said. “It always has been.”

Badgley said her son and her niece work at the refinery, but neither seems too concerned about it being for sale again.

CVR Energy acquired the Wynnewood refinery in December with its $525 million purchase of Gary-Williams Energy Corp. The Texas-based company also owns another refinery in Coffeyville, Kan., with a marketing network and gathering system that serves five states.

Denver-based Gary-Williams Energy bought the refinery in 1995 from Kerr-McGee Corp., which had owned it since 1945.
