Chevron Pasadena Refinery gets $400 million upgrade

Chevron to Expand Pasadena Refinery

The $400 million project will increase the oil company’s capacity to process light crude at the Pasadena refinery by nearly 15% to 125,000 barrels a day. The ability to process more crude oil at the facility, which Chevron took over in 2019, will expand Chevron’s Gulf Coast refining system and help supply a portion of their retail market in Texas and Louisiana.

The company plans to use the tight oil (from shale) sourced from the Permian Basin located in western Texas and southeastern New Mexico. In addition to increasing capacity, the project will add jet fuel to the facility’s portfolio, decommission certain units, reduce process safety risks and lower the permitted emissions of the refinery.

Chevron Pasadena provides a strategic location along the Houston Ship Channel to process Permian crude oil. The refinery offers more than 5 million barrels of crude oil storage capacity and access to a dock. Approximately 600 direct employees and contractors work at the facility.
