This is a bottle of the first jet fuel produced on September 20, 2012, by Monroe Energy's Trainer Refinery, a subsidiary of Delta located near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Presented to Delta CEO Richard Anderson.
Delta purchased the refinery in 2012 from ConocoPhillips to offset the risk of higher jet fuel prices. Delta is the first airline to own a fuel refinery.
