Doesn't give much information about refineries Oklahoma other than stating there are some or maybe one, and some oil wells. Reference to Colorado also supplying fuel, although that maybe from a depot of scavenged supplies.
From Wikipedia:
"In some FCC catalysts, the Brønsted sites may be later replaced by rare earth metals such as cerium and lanthanum to provide alternative activity and stability levels."
Lanthanum! aha! another connection to the stategic material of the Traveller future. Not in the 2300 AD universe, albeit.

2091 AD* is coming sooner than you think!

Uncle Ted



* 2091 AD is when the Solomani (us here on Terra) discover Traveller Jump Drive technology, using Lanthanum, setting the Traveller universe in motion for the nasty Terrans to topple the Vilani First Imperium, set up the brief Second Empire, collapse it into the Long Night and then start the Third Imperium which grows for 1000 years until it reaches the Classic Traveller period...
