Valero Energy had another strong quarter, with all segments performing well and the company delivering an all-around beat. Despite planned maintenance at several facilities, the refineries operated at a high capacity utilization rate of 93%, showcasing the management’s commitment to operational excellence and its ability to optimize throughput. The strong performance was supported by lower industry capacity and robust product demand, contributing to favorable refining margins. Notably, Valero achieved a significant milestone by completing and successfully starting up the Port Arthur Coker project, which is expected to enhance the refinery’s capacity and operational efficiency. In the Renewable Diesel segment, the company achieved a sales volume record, driven by the successful ramp-up of DGD Port Arthur and the approval of a sustainable aviation project. Valero Energy is also actively progressing with carbon sequestration initiatives and exploring opportunities in low-carbon technologies. The company also initiated the production of a new coker at Port Arthur as a capacity expansion initiative. We give Valero Energy Corporation a ‘Buy’ rating with a revised target price.
