CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Consumers' Co-operatives Refineries Ltd has completed a C$2.7 billion ($2.72 billion) expansion at its Regina, Saskatchewan, refinery, boosting output at the facility by 30,000 barrels per day to 130,000 bpd.

The cooperative said in a statement production has begun in the new units, following four years of construction.

The expansion will primarily supply the Co-op's 235 retail outlets in Western Canada.
