ExxonMobil Refinery to Implement Technology that Increases Ultra-Low Sulfur Fuel Production

This month, TXOGA member company ExxonMobil announced that its Beaumont refinery is expanding production of ultra-low sulfur fuels by approximately 40,000 barrels per day. This gas meets the latest environmental standards and is achieved by using a proprietary catalyst system that removes sulfur while minimizing octane loss.

This is the facility’s second expansion of the year as it follows a 20,000 barrel-per-day expansion of the refinery’s crude processing ability, a project that is currently ongoing. In addition to the 345,000 barrel per day capacity refinery, ExxonMobil’s integrated operations in Beaumont also include chemical, lubricants and polyethylene plants.

Overall, ExxonMobil has 2,100 area employees and accounts for approximately 1 in 7 jobs in the region. This project is expected to further benefit the local economy by bringing additional temporary and permanent jobs to the area.
