We’re a global team united by a shared set of values, called The Chevron Way. From our volunteering initiatives to our commitment to diversity and inclusion, you’ll see that our values are so much more than words on paper – they’re our way of life. We demonstrate this in the work we do, and the way we do it.
safety and environmental performance
Approximately 1,500 employees and more than 5,000 contractors representing more than 330 companies worked nearly 7 million man hours at the Pascagoula Refinery in 2016. We are proud to lead the industry in safety, and were awarded the corporation’s prestigious Zero Is Attainable award in recognition of our facility’s injury-free* operation.
Environmental stewardship is a priority for the Pascagoula Refinery, and this year we continued our support of organizations like The Nature Conservancy and the Pascagoula River Audubon Center.

leading our industry
Since the Pascagoula Refinery began operating in 1963, we have grown to be Chevron’s largest domestic refinery, and one of the top petroleum refineries in the country. We process an average of 330,000 barrels of crude oil per day – enough to cover a football field to a depth of 32 feet – to manufacture gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, premium base oil and chemicals that are used as building blocks in plastics, garments, toys and other essential products.
training tomorrow’s workforce
We rely on highly-qualified professionals to operate our facility. To make sure the next generation of employees is prepared for high-tech manufacturing jobs, we support workforce development programs like the Process Operations Technology curriculum at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
what can you make from a barrel of oil?
Researchers broke down a typical barrel of domestic crude oil into what could be produced from it. Here’s what just one barrel of crude oil can produce:
The Pascagoula Refinery generated a direct economic impact of more than $746 million last year.† We are the county’s largest tax payer, contributing $21.7 million in property taxes to Jackson County and $26.6 million to Pascagoula-Gautier School District in 2016.
26th largest port
in the country*
Shipping via barge and tanker are an integral part of our business. The Port of Pascagoula is ranked as the 25th largest port* in the United States. If the Pascagoula Refinery wharf was an independent port, we would be the approximately 26th largest port in the country.
