OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Berkshire Hathaway has continued adding to its 15 percent stake in oil refiner Phillips 66.

Warren Buffett’s company said in a regulatory filing Monday that it bought another 83,466 shares to give it roughly 79.6 million shares of Phillips 66 stock.

The latest purchases worth roughly $6.5 million were made after Berkshire bought 414,065 Phillips 66 shares last week.

Buffett first started buying Phillips 66 stock in 2012. Berkshire traded about $1.4 billion of its Phillips 66 stock for one of the refiner’s additive businesses in 2013.
