Our integration capabilities at these manufacturing sites range from advantaged raw materials to product optionality with lubricants and chemicals. Earnings growth from Latin America and our new market entry in Mexico will be supported by our efficient U.S. Gulf Coast manufacturing sites.
Our midstream assets help connect our U.S. Gulf Coast sites to the resource-rich Permian Basin.
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
The Baton Rouge refinery’s scale and efficiency make it one of the most cost-competitive refineries in the industry. The refinery’s profitability benefits from optimization opportunities across multiple value chains. The site produces clean fuels and high-value lube basestock blending components, and is co-located with chemical manufacturing.
The Baytown refinery processes crude oil sourced from around the world, including from domestic conventional and unconventional sources. The site has premium Group II lube basestock production and is co-located with chemical manufacturing.
The Beaumont refinery is connected to multiple crude oil pipelines, providing us with the ability to process the most attractive crude oils. To improve its product slate, the site is expanding its ultra-low-sulfur diesel and gasoline capacity by 45,000 barrels per day in 2018.
The Joliet refinery is one of the most energy efficient in the United States and is a key supplier of petroleum products to the Midwest.
The Strathcona refinery produces a wide range of petroleum products, including gasoline, aviation fuel, diesel, heavy fuel oil, and asphalt.
The logistics supporting feedstock and product deliveries for our manufacturing sites include pipelines, distribution terminals, salt-dome storage facilities, fuel tanker trucks, and lubricant blend plants. We continue to grow our midstream footprint in the resource-rich Permian Basin. Our joint venture with Energy Transfer Partners improves access to crude oil from the Permian and Ardmore basins. The Wink, Texas, terminal acquisition supports our expanded presence in the Delaware Basin. With direct connections to our U.S. Gulf Coast manufacturing sites, these projects illustrate our integrated business model that is difficult for others to replicate.
