DK also produced diesel and jet fuel to the tune of 39% and 37% at the Tyler and the El Dorado refineries in 2Q16, respectively. Of the total production at the El Dorado refinery, Delek also produced around 6% asphalt. Everything else being equal, the higher the production of high-value lighter products, the better the refining margins.
