Description: Photo shows the Regent Oil Refinery with the Dubbs unit in the foreground. As the refinery processes were being improved and thruput was going up, it became apparent that the present steam plant was not large enough. In 1947 a new steam plant was built containing two Wicks boilers and two Foster-Wheeler Boilers. Thus the maximum steam capacity was increased to 85,000 lbs. per hour at 150 lbs. pressure.
