ExxonMobil has announced the successful startup of its Beaumont refinery, US,  expansion project, which adds 250,000 barrels per day of capacity to one of the largest refining and petrochemical complexes along the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Karen McKee, president of ExxonMobil product solutions says: ‘ExxonMobil maintained its commitment to the Beaumont expansion even through the lows of the pandemic, knowing consumer demand would return and new capacity would be critical in the post-pandemic economic recovery. The new crude unit enables us to produce even more transportation fuels at a time when demand is surging. This expansion is the equivalent of a medium-sized refinery and is a key part of our plans to provide society with reliable, affordable energy products.’

The added volume in Beaumont increases its total processing capacity to more than 630,000 barrels per day.

The refinery is connected to pipelines from ExxonMobil’s operations in the U.S. Permian Basin, providing the company with significant strategic advantages. Construction on the Beaumont expansion began in 2019 and involved 1,700 contractors. ExxonMobil’s integrated operations in Beaumont also include chemical, lubricants and polyethylene plants.
