Phillips 66 makes it a priority to stay ready. We closely monitor tropical storms, hurricanes and other weather events that could threaten our operations. We have identified and applied lessons learned from previous years’ storms to enhance our existing storm preparation and response plans for all assets located along the Gulf Coast. The safety of our employees and their families remains our highest priority, and we have thorough plans in place to give employees adequate time to prepare for a storm or evacuate if necessary.

As we progress following Hurricane Zeta, the safety and well-being of our employees remains our top priority. All Phillips 66 employees across the area are being accounted for, and we are working with them to understand potential assistance needs during this time.
Initial facility assessments at Alliance Refinery indicate minimal damage. Commercial electrical power is expected to be restored from the local provider in the near future. Once it's fully safe to do so, recent planned maintenance work will resume.
Our thoughts continue to be with everyone impacted by the storm.

Phillips 66 continues to closely monitor Hurricane Zeta. All non-essential personnel have been released from Alliance Refinery per the site’s hurricane response procedures. The refinery originally shut down prior to Hurricane Sally in mid-September and has remained shut down to conduct maintenance work.
After Zeta’s landfall, standby personnel will access the site once safe to do so and maintenance work will resume.
