Refining CEOs met with Trump, seeking concessions on U.S. biofuels policy -sources

Sept 12 (Reuters) - The chief executives of two of the largest U.S. refining companies met with President Trump and other officials on Wednesday, seeking concessions in ongoing negotiations over biofuels laws, according to two sources familiar with discussions.

Valero Energy CEO Joe Gorder and Marathon Petroleum CEO Gary Heminger were at the White House on Wednesday, the sources said, amid ongoing wrangling by the administration to try to find ways to satisfy warring agricultural and oil interests over biofuels.

The White House is expected to meet with U.S. Senators from key farm states later on Thursday and senators representing oil-producing states on Friday, the sources said.

The White House was not immediately available for comment. (Reporting by Jarrett Renshaw and Stephanie Kelly, Editing by Rosalba O’Brien)
