San Francisco Refinery

Our San Francisco Refinery has two facilities linked by a 200-mile pipeline: Santa Maria, in Arroyo Grande, California, and Rodeo, in the Bay Area. The refinery processes a mixture of heavy, high-sulfur and light sweet crude oils. It receives California crude oil by pipeline and both domestic and foreign crude oils by tanker. Semi-refined products from Santa Maria are sent by pipeline to Rodeo for upgrading into finished petroleum products. A large portion of the refinery’s production is transportation fuel such as gasoline and diesel.

Process facilities include coking, hydrocracking, hydrotreating and naphtha reforming units. The refinery produces CARB-grade gasoline and diesel fuels. The majority of refined products are distributed by pipeline, railcar and barge to customers in California.
