US agribusiness cooperative CHS is to further expand access to E15 vehicle fuel in the US, partly through a new partnership with terminal operator Magellan.
CHS sells E15 through its Cenex retail locations, and the fuel will be available at 19 new terminals from early August 2021. This includes Magellan’s terminals in Alexandria, Minnesota; Cheyenne, Wyoming; Columbia, Missouri; Des Moines, Iowa; Doniphan, Nebraska; Fargo, North Dakota; Grand Forks, North Dakota; Great Bend, Kansas; Mankato, Minnesota; Marshall, Minnesota; Mason City Iowa; Milford, Iowa; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Omaha, Nebraska; Rochester, Minnesota; Springfield, Missouri; and Waterloo, Iowa. CHS E15 fuel will also be available through CHS’s own terminal in McPherson, Kansas, and through NuStar Energy’s terminal in Jamestown, North Dakota
CHS has an existing partnership with terminal operator NuStar to offer E15 through ten of its US terminals, which was first announced in March 2021. The fuel is additionally available through another CHS terminal.
‘As the nation’s leading farmer-owned cooperative, expanding options for ethanol blended fuel is important for our Cenex brand retailers and our farmer-owners,’ says Akhtar Hussain, director of refined fuels marketing, CHS. ‘CHS has always been committed to offering ethanol blended flexible fuels throughout its network of 1,450 Cenex brand retail facilities. We continue to demonstrate this commitment by working with our terminal partners to offer higher ethanol blends in a broader geography across the Cenex retail network.’
