From providing high skill jobs that pay competitive wages, to supporting local businesses and non-profit organizations, to paying taxes that fund essential public services, Chevron has been an important part of the Richmond community for more than 113 years.

We are also proud to produce the world’s cleanest transportation fuels in one of the cleanest refineries in the world. From gasoline to diesel and jet fuel, our products fuel the Bay Area economy and improve the quality of life for all its residents.

The City of Richmond and Chevron have a proud heritage and, together, we have a bright future. We are dedicated to helping Richmond reach its greatest potential by making investments to modernize our refinery, helping to improve Richmond schools and creating career-building opportunities for local residents.

We recently launched a new video that highlights the work we do at the Richmond Refinery. You can watch it here or below:

  1. Thanks for this information. Is Chevron developing solar and wind energy to compliment it’s oil reserves??

  2. Very cool that this is one of the cleanest refineries in the world. Do you have more specifics to share on this? It would be great if Chevron could outline what comparables they used to claim this status and it would be wonderful if they could share high level updates to the citizens of Richmond on a bi-annual basis. This ensures transparency, builds trust and ensures the health of their residents is put at the forefront.

    Post a link here is the information is already available someone where. A researcher I know has been looking for this information, but not able to gather it all yet.

    I am also curious about the other comment posted here……is Chevron prioritizing wind and solar technology at this facility?

  3. I was at a townhall meeting last night and someone asked what the percentage of cancer was amongst Chevron Refinery workers vs. the average citizen within that same proximity. This is a very interesting question, and I could understand why the Chevron representative could not answer in the spot. It would be really good for Chevron to perhaps complete a study or release results from studies which they have completed for this. Someone also raised issues with air and soil quality impact within vicinity of the facilities. I think Chevron would benefit tremendously if they addressed this and in conjunction move to developing all clean technology (even if only at the facilities adjacent to residents). Cha Ching, would they continue to rein and dominate.
