Chevron Richmond refinery plan won't increase pollution, report says

  • Chevron's (CVX) plan to upgrade its aging Richmond, Calif., refinery won’t add to air pollution if the company follows all its proposed steps, according to a draft environmental report released by the city.
  • The report indicates CVX should be able to fulfill its pledge that the $1B project will result in no net increase in pollution, including greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Should it win city approval, the revamped project would not enable the refinery to process heavier crudes, but it would be able to process crudes with a higher sulfur content than it currently handles.
