Note: Barrels per calendar day reflect the amount of input a distillation facility can process under usual operating conditions. This differs from barrels per stream day, which does not take into account downtime.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported that as of January 1, 2013, the United States had 143 operable refineries with a total atmospheric crude oil distillation capacity of 17.8 million barrels per calendar day (bbl/d), an increase of 0.5 million bbl/d (2.9%) since January 1, 2012.
