Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery
Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery, one of the largest refineries on the East Coast, has been in operation for over 100 years. Our vision is to be the top Northeast refinery – admired for its people, performance, and commitment to the community. The refinery is located on the New York Harbor in Linden, NJ and is a key asset to the region and the State of New Jersey. We are one of eleven Phillips 66 Refineries. In 2017, along with one other refinery, we were recognized as the top performer within the Phillips 66 refining system, Bayway was awarded the 2017 Elite Silver Safety Award by the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers Association and is currently a finalist for the 2017 Distinguished Safety Award. These honors recognize Bayway's safety performance as being in the top 5% of all refineries in the United States.
The refinery processes mainly, light, low-sulfur crude oil. Crude oil is supplied to the refinery by tanker, primarily from Canada and Africa. The Crude Rail Unloading Facility, which began operations in August of 2014, has made possible the receipt of advantaged domestic crude by rail from the mid-west, keeping Bayway Refinery competitive in the global oil economy.
Bayway Refinery is nicknamed the "gasoline machine", because it is home to one of the world's largest fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) units. This unit enables the refinery to produce enough gasoline to meet more than half of New Jersey's annual demand. Bayway’s refining units also include two hydrodesulfurization units, a naphtha reformer, an alkylation unit, an isomerization unit and other processing equipment. Bayway also has a polypropylene plant that produces 775 million pounds of plastic pellets per year, which are used in various consumable and durable goods industries.
The refinery produces other products in addition to gasoline, including diesel fuel, jet fuel, petrochemical feed stocks, residual fuel oil, and home heating oil. Refined products are distributed to customers primarily on the East Coast via barges, trucks, pipeline and railcars.
Bayway Refinery is recognized for its long history of providing jobs, and years of support to the economy and local communities. The 800 plus employees of Bayway work hard every day to make the refinery a safe, strong, viable, and successful facility that can continue to provide energy and support for communities for years to come. By living the Phillips 66 values of Safety, Honor, and Commitment, our high-performing workforce makes it possible for the company to achieve its mission of Providing Energy and Improving Lives.
