Chevron Mulls Refinery Expansion in Mississippi

By Chemical Week Editorial Staff

Chevron is evaluating a possible expansion of its Pascagoula, MS refinery as part of a five-year plan to grow its production by more than 3%/year, the company said in an analysts’ meeting in New York last week. The expansion would add 200,000-bbls/day, about 60%, to refining capacity at Pascagoula, making it the number-two refinery in the U.S., the company says. ExxonMobil’s Baytown, TX refinery is the largest. The Pascagoula refinery also houses aromatics production for Chevron Phillips Chemical (CPChem), a 50-50 joint venture of Chevron and CoconoPhillips. Chevron says it has not determined whether the project would allow an increase in aromatics capacity.
