Our Ferndale Refinery is located on Puget Sound in Ferndale, Washington, about 20 miles south of the U.S.-Canada border. It processes a variety of domestic and foreign crude oils, including Alaskan North Slope, Canadian and U.S. shale crudes.

With a deep-water dock, a 30,000 BPD rail unloading facility and access to existing crude oil pipelines, Ferndale has the flexibility to process a broad slate of crudes. Its facilities consist of a fluid catalytic cracker, an alkylation unit, hydro-treating units and a naphtha reformer.

The refinery produces gasoline and diesel. Other products include residual fuel oil, which supplies the northwest marine transportation market. Most of Ferndale’s refined products are distributed by pipeline and barge to major markets in the northwest United States.

​Community Leaders Forum

Year established: 2007

The Phillips 66 Ferndale Refinery launched its Community Leaders Forum in December 2007 as another way to reach out to stakeholders and engage members of our local community. Quarterly breakfast meetings include formal presentations, informal discussions and time to network. This format gives refinery leadership an opportunity to share information and answer questions about our business and community activities. The forum also offers leaders an opportunity to discuss timely community issues and concerns.

The Ferndale Refinery Community Leaders Forum has approximately 40 members including neighbors, refinery annuitants, public school superintendents, local college and university presidents, public safety officials, executive directors of local non-profits and environmental organizations and local, county, state and federal elected officials and staff.

Four meetings are held each year.
