The Bayway Refinery, located on the New York Harbor in Linden, New Jersey, processes mainly light, low-sulfur crude oil. Crude oil is supplied to the refinery by tanker from Canada and West Africa, and U.S.-advantaged crude is supplied through a combination of rail and marine transport.
A new rail offloading facility began operations in August 2014. With a capacity of 75,000 BPD, this offloading facility, owned by Phillips 66 Partners, makes the receipt of additional advantaged crude by railcar possible. The refinery produces a high percentage of transportation fuels and petrochemical feedstocks, residual fuel oil and home heating oil. The facility distributes refined products to East Coast customers by barge, truck, pipeline and railcar.
Bayway's refining units include fluid catalytic cracking, hydrodesulfurization units, a naphtha reformer, an alkylation unit and other processing equipment. Bayway also has a 775 MMLb/Y polypropylene plant.

Community Advisory Panel
Year established: 1998
The Bayway Refinery Community Advisory Panel (CAP) meetings are attended by representatives from the member companies as well as community members. The goal of each meeting is to promote a better understanding of the companies and their facilities and operations by maintaining an open dialogue with the CAP. In addition, CAP meetings serve as a forum for updating the CAP on issues of importance to the local communities.
The Bayway Community Advisory Panel (CAP) is sponsored by five member companies operating facilities at the site: Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery, Infineum USA L.P., Cogen Technologies Linden Venture, Chemours and Eastman Chemicals, as well as three neighboring companies: NuStar Energy, PSE&G Linden Generating Station, and Linden VFT. Together they host approximately 35 citizen members from four local communities – Linden, Elizabeth, Rahway and Staten Island.
CAP members are selected because they have an interest in plant operations and related topics. Members are associated with or represent civic groups; education; emergency response; environment; health care; merchants/business; municipal government; neighbors or senior citizens. While most CAP members are volunteers, certain elected and appointed officials serve as members due to their positions within the community.
Meetings are held quarterly.
