Amoco Oil Co. will spend millions of dollars for a 20 percent increase in production of gasoline and diesel fuel at its Salt Lake refinery to meet a demand for more product in Utah, Idaho and Washington.

Syd Horsfield, Amoco's Salt Lake City business unit manager, said, "We're making a considerable investment that clearly signals a significant commitment to our Salt Lake City refinery operations and the markets we supply in Utah, Idaho and eastern Washington. This area contains some of the nation's fastest-growing cities, and we are preparing to meet projected increases in petroleum product demand."Additional emission-control equipment that will meet existing operating permits and support Utah's air quality state implementation plan for the Environmental Protection Agency also will be installed.
