Reflecting on 2018


By Kory Judd

As 2018 has drawn to a close, I want to take a moment to reflect on some thoughts about who we are as a company and a member of the Richmond community. We have built our reputation on the principles of responsibility, trust and integrity. And we deliver results the right and responsible way. We are engineers, scientists, environmentalists, technologists, neighbors and citizens. I encourage you to read about a few of the men and women who work on a daily, weekly and monthly basis to help the Richmond Refinery operate safely and reliably. Together, we develop the energy that improves lives and powers Richmond and the world forward.

We develop generations of problems solvers, leveraging technology to push energy’s frontiers. We help Richmond achieve social and economic progress, because the community’s desire for progress continues to grow. We have solved some of the most complex energy challenges of the past; together we will innovate for the future.

On a personal level, I have enjoyed my regular visits to cook and serve meals at the Greater Richmond Interfaith Program (GRIP). Giving back to the community is not only personally gratifying but it’s also the right thing to do.

From the entire Richmond Refinery team, we want to wish you and your family a safe, happy and healthy new year.
