What Drove CVR Energy and CVR Refining’s Q2 2018 Results?

CVR Energy (CVI) and its subsidiary CVR Refining (CVRR) reported their second-quarter results on July 25 after the markets closed. CVR Refining’s adjusted EBITDA rose to $147 million—compared to $43 million in the same quarter last year. “The quarter’s success was attributable to a $4.88 increase in Group 3 crack spreads, low Renewable Identification Number (RIN) prices and wide crude oil differentials compared to the same period last year,” said Dave Lamp, CEO of CVR Refining’s general partner.
