After considering several locations, the company chose a location high on the bluffs of the Mississippi River in North Baton Rouge. In April 1909, Standard Oil Company of Louisiana was chartered, and by November 1909 the refinery processed its first products.
Since that time, ExxonMobil Baton Rouge has been essential to the economic, political and social landscape of the community. We provide quality jobs, provide technologically innovative products and engage with the community to make it a great place to work and live.
Operational excellence and improved energy efficiency are responsible for Baton Rouge's ever-increasing output capacity. Our versatile integrated facilities produce gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, aviation fuel, lubricating oils and waxes. In addition, products produced at the Chemical Plant, along with the Resins Finishing, Polyolefins and Plastics plants, are used to make products people use every day, including paint, adhesives, plastic milk jugs, auto parts, plastic films, synthetic rubber, diapers and lubricants.
