San Francisco Refinery

The Evolution of Rodeo Renewed

See All

We are committed to the communities where our employees live and work. The San Francisco Refinery has proudly operated in Contra Costa County for 125 years. The plant has significant hydroprocessing capacity which allows for the volume needed to produce large quantities of renewable fuels. Rodeo also has a logistical advantage with access to the Bay and to local companies demanding renewable fuel supplies. 

The refinery has two facilities linked by a 200-mile pipeline: Santa Maria, in Arroyo Grande, CA, and Rodeo, in the Bay Area. Process facilities include coking, hydrocracking, hydrotreating and naphtha reforming units. The refinery produces CARB-grade gasoline and diesel fuels. When fully operational, Rodeo Renewed will take raw materials like used cooking oils, fats, greases, soybean, and other vegetable oils, and convert them into renewable gas, diesel and jet fuel. The majority of refined products are distributed by pipeline, railcar and barge to customers in California.

Community Advisory Panel

Year established: 1995

The goal of the Rodeo Refinery Community Advisory Panel (CAP) is to create an atmosphere of open communication and partnership with neighboring communities.

The Rodeo CAP was formed in 1995 with 12 members from areas neighboring the refinery. The CAP is an advisory body with the purpose of reviewing, discussing, and making recommendations on issues of concern to its members, the community and the company.

The objectives of the CAP are to function as a resource through which Phillips 66 can identify and discuss issues of community concern; provide perspectives from the membership categories and geographical areas represented on the CAP; suggest ways in which Phillips 66 can strengthen its relationship with its neighbors; review and monitor projects and incidents at the refinery; and comment and share expertise regarding company-identified actions, projects and activities.

The CAP provides feedback to Phillips 66 and suggests ways to strengthen the relationship with the community. Its role is advisory in nature, and the CAP is not asked to approve or reject any actions taken by the company.

Phillips 66 actively works to be responsive to the concerns and recommendations of the CAP and provide such resources, including outside technical assistance, as may be needed by the CAP to perform its function.

The Rodeo Refinery CAP is made up of approximately 12 community members and three local representatives from the Rodeo-Hercules Fire Department, Carquinez-Crockett Fire Department and John Swett Unified School District School Board. The monthly meetings have an average attendance of 12 to 14.

The CAP meets the fourth Monday of the month from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.  Call (510) 245-4070 for more information.
