Downstream operations: Americas

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.

Downstream operations

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.

Baytown, Texas

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.

Beaumont, Texas

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.
