Marathon Petroleum (MPC) has announced that it is to indefinitely idle its refineries in Martinez, California, and Gallup, New Mexico, with no plans to restart normal operations.

In a statement the company said that as part of these changes, Martinez will be converted to a terminal facility. It is evaluating the strategic repositioning of Martinez to a renewable diesel facility, which aligns with California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standards objectives and MPC’s greenhouse gas reduction targets.

The company expects to begin a phased reduction of staffing levels in October.
