Since its beginnings during the Spindletop oil boom, ExxonMobil in Beaumont has contributed to the economic and social landscape of the southeast Texas. We provide quality jobs, technologically innovative products and a commitment to help develop the community where we work and live.
The petrochemical manufacturing complex, which consists of the refinery, chemical plant, polyethylene plant and lubricant blending and packaging plant, has grown to 2,700 acres. More than 2,000 employees work at our site, along with about 3,000 contractors depending on construction and turnaround activity.
The Beaumont refinery processes 366,000 barrels of crude oil per day and produces 2.8 billion gallons of gasoline annually. The Beaumont chemical plant produces building-block chemicals such as ethylene and propylene, synthetic fluids and lubricant base-stocks, and more than 25 different types of zeolite catalyst. The Beaumont lubricant blending and packaging plant manufactures lube oil, greases, greases used in the wind turbine industry, and is the only manufacturer of Mobil aviation greases. Mobil 1, the world’s leading synthetic motor oil, is manufactured and packaged in Beaumont.
The Beaumont polyethylene plant, located on 300 acres west of Beaumont, produces granular and pelletized polyethylene, which is used in the manufacture of plastic products.
ExxonMobil plans to spend more than $20 billion over 10 years to build and expand manufacturing facilities in the U.S. Gulf Coast. Some of that expansion is already underway in Beaumont, including the construction of a new production unit at the polyethylene plant and a new desulfurization unit at the Beaumont refinery.
