Who are the small refiners in the ULSD program? Are they the same as the ?small refiners? in the Tier 2 gasoline program?

We have received 18 applications for small refiner status, and many of these refiners are currently approved small refiners for the gasoline sulfur and highway diesel programs. However, they may not all be approved for NRLM small refiner status. Specific information can be obtained upon request from Larry Haslett of EPA.
