It consisted of a small crude Stilling Unit and nine storage tanks. The thruput, or amount of crude oil processed each day was 300 barrels which was converted to gasoline and fuel oils. Mr. F. K.

Russel, and were pulled by three tugs, Ajax, Ethel, and Muscallonge. Photo shows the Roy K. Russel tied up for unloading in the slip.
