Phillips 66's Rodeo Refinery will be the largest renewable diesel facility in the world as the oil and gas industry continues to diversify

October 22, 2020 | Case Study

Following a series of announcements in 2018 about entering the low-carbon fuel space with three commercial projects, Phillips 66 topped itself with an announcement in August 2020 that it will retrofit its Rodeo Refinery into an 800 million gallon per year renewable diesel, renewable gasoline, and sustainable aviation fuel facility. The project will occur in two phases. The first phase is set to begin in 2021 with the reconfiguration of a portion of Rodeo Refinery to bring online 120 million gallons per year of capacity through the conversion of its existing hydrotreaters. The second phase, if approved, will include the construction of feedstock pre-treatment units, repurposing of hydrocrackers, and establishing the necessary up- and downstream infrastructure and lead to an additional 680 million gallons per year of production capacity by 2023.
