Built along the banks of the Neches River in 1903, ExxonMobil’s Beaumont refining facilities have grown into an integrated petrochemical complex that today supports the energy needs of our nation and the world.
Since its beginnings during the Spindletop oil boom, ExxonMobil in Beaumont has contributed to the economic and social landscape of southeast Texas. We provide quality jobs, technologically innovative products and a commitment to help develop the community where we work and live.
The petrochemical manufacturing complex, which consists of the refinery, chemical plant, polyethylene plant and lubricant blending and packaging plant, has grown to 2,700 acres. More than 2,000 employees work at our site, along with about 3,000 contractors depending on construction and turnaround activity.
The Beaumont refinery processes 366,000 barrels of crude oil per day and produces 2.8 billion gallons of gasoline annually. The Beaumont chemical plant produces building-block chemicals such as ethylene and propylene, synthetic fluids and lubricant base-stocks, and more than 25 different types of zeolite catalyst. The Beaumont lubricant blending and packaging plant manufactures lube oil, greases including those used in the wind turbine industry, and is the only manufacturer of Mobil aviation greases. Mobil 1, the world’s leading synthetic motor oil, is manufactured and packaged in Beaumont.
In January 2019, ExxonMobil announced plans for a further expansion of the facility to increase light crude refining capacity by more than 65 percent, or 250,000 barrels per day.
