Chevron unit starts base oil production from Pascagoula plant

Chevron Corp. subsidiary Chevron USA Inc. reported the start of commercial base oil production from a newly constructed facility with a design capacity of 25,000 b/d at the company’s 330,000-b/cd Pascagoula, Miss., refinery.

Base oils produced at Pascagoula will add to capacity from the company’s 257,000-b/cd refinery at Richmond, Calif., and a joint venture facility in Yeosu, South Korea, nearly doubling Chevron’s base oil production capacity.

Base oils from the new facility will supply the US East Coast, Europe, and Latin America, with Richmond continuing to supply the US West Coast, and both Richmond and Yeosu supplying Asia.
