The 587 foot tall Mammoet PTC 140 crane, seen here from North First Street, towers over the Refinery Complex in Ponca City. The supercrane was used to move two new 232 ton coker reactor units within the refinery on September 29, 2013. Phillips was willing to invest $70 million in the two new coker reactor units because the Ponca City Refinery is one of the best run, safest, and most profitable of Phillips' fifteen worldwide refineries and Garland wants the refinery in Ponca City to continue to run smoothly and profitably. This photograph of the supercrane in Ponca City was taken from almost two miles away from the crane. Photo: Hugh Pickens All Rights Reserved.

This is the first time a map has shown the remaining native tall grass prairie.

The Phillips 66 Splash Club in Bartlesville is celebrating its 66th year of tradition, of fun, or hard work, of a journey to national and international significance, and of helping to mold countless children into successful adults and of excellence.

The Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise reported on August 18, 2016 that the Phillips 66 Splash Club in Bartlesville is celebrating its 66th year of tradition, of fun, or hard work, of a journey to national and international significance, and of helping to mold countless children into successful adults and of excellence. "Who would have thought that a small deed of an idea in 1950 ... would have grown into the dream of the continuing dominance of United States swimming,” said Ken Treadway who was hired in 1950 by then Phillips Petroleum Director of Recreation Bud Browning as the first Splash Club coach. That decision put in motion an amateur organization — the longest of its kind in United States history — that has influenced the lives of thousands of Bartlesville area children. The urrent Splash Club head coach Chad Englehart feels proud to be able to help celebrate the 66th Anniversary of the founding of the club and is hoping his current swimmers participate in all the doings set for Labor Day Weekend including an alumni meet on Saturday, a gathering on Saturday evening and a picnic on Sunday at Woolaroc. “I want to show them off and show what a great crop of young people we have now in the program. I want them hear what the Splash Club has meant to USA Swimming, to Bartlesville and to the adults that will be there.”[35]

Kenneth Treadway founded the Phillips 66 Splash Club on December 6, 1950. Since then thousands of swimmers have participated, including second-generation Splash Club members.

In addition, U.S. National Team members, High School All-American Swimmers, and collegiate swimmers have been fostered by Splash Club. We are recognized as one of the finest programs in the nation including members holding state records. The team name was changed in September of 2002 to reflect the merger of Phillips Petroleum Company and Conoco to the ConocoPhillips Splash Club. In 2012 the team again changed names to Phillips 66 Splash Club to reflect the separation of Phillips 66 from ConocoPhillips.[36]

February 25, 2016: Phillips 66 Soccer Park Opens Debate over Naming Rights in Whatcom County

The Bellingham Herald reported on February 26, 2016 that while County Council members says they did not want to diminish the generosity of the $700,000 donation from Phillips 66 Ferndale Refinery to rename the Northwest Soccer Park for 20 years, they deliberated handing the naming rights to a private entity without a countywide policy. Awarding the naming rights for a public facility is new for Whatcom County Parks and Recreation, which has no official policy for renaming facilities and doesn’t plan to draft one with any urgency. “It’s not high on our list,” explained Michael McFarlane, director of county parks and recreation. “We typically don’t have many opportunities for naming in the county park system.”

“Having naming rights on public land doesn’t feel totally right to me,” Mann said during the council’s Jan. 26 finance meeting. “This is obviously an incredibly generous and wonderful offer on the part of the corporation, and I don’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I want to know what this means for the long-term future of having public facilities named after private corporations.” Council member Barbara Brenner, on the other hand, said she thought it was a great idea. “I think we should do more of this,” Brenner said. “It’s still county property. We’re not giving it away.” The members waited to vote on the matter until Feb. 9, by which point Mann said he supported the measure. “I think it’s important to have processes in place for this, and I think we’re going to work on that,” Mann said. “This donation is incredibly generous and I’m happy to vote yes on this.”[42]

City Manager Jim Schneider says Phillips 66 helped immensely with the water situation. “Melissa [Erker] called me and asked how Phillips 66 could help and they sent a crew over there with pumps for a few days,” said Schneider. “Our city employees and IDOT also did a good job working with the area. Without Phillips 66 assisting, the water would have been over the road for more days, Schneider added. The city manager is hopeful that Phillips 66 and IDOT both will work with the city to find a permanent solution to the problem with water spilling out to the road on both sides of Illinois 143 near Illinois 255.[43]

Garland said that the donation is just one way Phillips 66 can demonstrate its commitment to Bartlesville and the employee base here. “Bartlesville is so unique. You have such a cadre of highly-educated people here in this town that are willing to go back (to the schools), and I think the STEM labs will create opportunities for people to go in there and encourage people in science, technology, engineering and math,” Garland told the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise. “I think that education is one of the keys. We have to have exemplary schools in our communities so that our employees choose to live in those communities. We want to make sure they have good options. We are particularly interested in encouraging students. We want them to finish school, get their high school degree and go on to college, if that is what they want to do. We want them to be interested in science, technology, engineering and math.”[46]

On August 13, 2015 Ponca City resident Hugh Pickens spoke with Phillips 66 Chief Executive Officer Greg Garland after a forum in Bartlesville sponsored by the Bartlesville Chamber of Commerce and asked Garland what it would take for Ponca City to qualify for a grant from Phillips 66 to promote science in the Ponca City School System, like the grant of $1.7 million that Phillips 66 gave to Bartlesville Public Schools in 2014 to create new innovative laboratories on three school campuses in Bartlesville to support science, technology, engineering and math. Garland responded that he would look into the matter.[47]

The Yellowstone Kelly project would make this forlorn site a gem of the city park system. Deputy Mayor Jani McCall noted at the Phillips 66 celebration that Swords Park averages about 170,000 visitors annually. In addition to Kelly’s grave, the park is rich in history.

The Bellingham Herald reported on December 15, 2015 that Phillips 66 Ferndale Refinery is donating $700,000, the largest known gift the Ferndale refinery has made in Whatcom County, for two new artificial turf fields, lights and a scoreboard for Northwest Soccer Park in Bellingham, Washington. The gift comes with an agreement that includes renaming the facility Phillips 66 Soccer Park. Funding for the project was put together over the course of a few years. Phillips 66 was motivated to make its large donation because the project improves the community, said Rich Harbison, Phillip 66’s Ferndale refinery manager. The company said previous work with Whatcom Sports and Recreation were positive experiences. “It gave us confidence that they could hit the goals they set for this project,” Harbison said. The first soccer fields were installed in the late 1980s when the county began renting the area to what was then the Whatcom Soccer Commission. Participation grew about 15 percent a year, so the soccer organization added fields, hitting its current size about 15 years ago, said Chet Lackey, who is on the board of Whatcom Sports & Recreation. The nonprofit organization also operates Bellingham Sportsplex and Civic Complex.[50]

November 16, 2015: Bartlesville High School Holds Open House for $1.7 million Phillips 66 Innovation Labs

The Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise reported on November 16, 2015 that members from the community got to see first hand Sunday the result of a multimillion dollar expansion of the campus at Bartlesville High School and one of the crowning achievements is the Phillips 66 Innovation Labs that are already completed at Madison Middle School and the BHS campus. The labs are made possible by a $1.7 million grant to the BPSD from Phillips 66.

Taking something that you can visualize in your head and figuring out the math behind it,” he said. Cochran said he plans to pursue a career in engineering.

The lab has allowed the high school to add research, computer science and chemistry classes, said Superintendent Dr. Gary Quinn. “Our students can now do their science fair projects in a space fair classes in a space that’s designed for that,” he said. Quinn said the administration plans to connect with company employees and retirees to mentor the BHS students. “It will help them to be able to grow even more. … It’s a very exciting thing that we think sets our school district apart from other school districts,” Quinn said.[51]

September 10, 2015: Phillips 66 Donates Mural to St. Louis

"66 Reasons to Love St. Louis" Phillips 66 donated a 1,200-square-foot mural to the city of St. Louis as part of KDHX 88.1 FM "66 Reasons to Love St. Louis" ad campaign. "It is not likely we would have taken on a mural without some kind of sponsor," says Kelly Wells, the station's interim co-executive director. She said the company paid for all the materials and compensated the father-daughter artist duo, Robert and Liza Fishbone, who created it. Photo: Nicholas Phillips

The River Front Times reported on September 10, 2015 that Phillips 66 has donated a 1,200-square-foot mural to the city of St. Louis as part of KDHX 88.1 FM "66 Reasons to Love St. Louis" ad campaign. "It is not likely we would have taken on a mural without some kind of sponsor," says Kelly Wells, the station's interim co-executive director. She said the company paid for all the materials and compensated the father-daughter artist duo, Robert and Liza Fishbone, who created it. The Fishbones were selected by a committee consisting of representatives from Phillips 66, KDHX, the Grand Center and the locally-based marketing firm Switch after a request for proposals. According to the River Front Times, the mural also contains some subtle — though probably unintended — PR imagery. The left side of it depicts someone canoeing on a clean blue river — ironic, given that as recently as last April, the Phillips 66 refinery in Wood River, Illinois (which is just across the river from St. Charles) spilled 25,000 gallons of diesel fuel into a waterway that feeds into the Mississippi. The mural will be dedicated on September 11, by Mayor Francis G. Slay.[52]

Because extra crews and resources are going to be used to correct the problem, Nabholz Construction said completion of the Phillips 66 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Lab will be delayed. The STEM Lab is being built in the basement of the main building at BHS, where the former cafeteria was located.

December 31, 2014: The Shredder Writes: "There’s a plethora of people eager to tell you all about how Phillips 66 has done so much for the community"

Anonymous columnist "The Shredder" wrote in the New Times on December 31, 2014 that there's "here’s a plethora of people eager to tell you all about how Phillips 66 has done so much for the community, how much Phillips 66 cares about us all, and how very much it would hurt Phillips 66’s feelings if we denied the company its rail spur project. The problem is, Phillips 66 has greased the verbal wheels by giving these people a lot of money, and then turned around and given even more money to a local PR firm to tell the rest of the community just how great Phillips 66 really is. Call me a cynic, but as soon as I know someone’s been paid to say something, they lose credibility in my eyes, and I’m speaking as someone who has never been paid. Maybe they really mean it. But if that were the case, why wouldn’t they say it without being paid?"

The reality is that Phillips 66’s “good neighbor” moments tend to be choreographed, right down to photographs of a smiling spokesperson handing over an enormous check. And that’s OK. That’s what for-profit corporations do. It is not, however, what good neighbors do. I know, because my neighbor is still miffed about the time I offered to pay up front so my dog can freely pop squats in his yard. In fact, a company is not a neighbor at all, regardless of how many times a PR company repeats the term. A corporation is not a human being with human concerns; corporations are motivated by one thing: profit.

While I don’t fault Phillips 66 for behaving like a corporation any more than I fault a wild animal for behaving like a wild animal, I don’t much appreciate the fact that they’re trotting out platitudes about being there for the community in lieu of substantive discussion about the impacts of what they’re proposing. Hiring a company to attempt to wrangle and limit the media while feeding the public a heavily manipulated image of an oil company as Mr. Rogers—if Mr. Rogers was in the habit of doling out enormous checks—is a fairly oily thing to do.[72]

According to Museum volunteer Arnold Jonas, the group hosted a tour of its facility for Phillips 66 officials in late fall and received a positive reaction. “Several of the people touring our museum were from out of state and were frankly amazed at what our group of volunteers has accomplished,” said Jonas. “And not only was the group impressed by the museum, they were intrigued by our emphasis on education and our interest in telling the story of the railroad in our county. Apparently that paved the way for our grant approval,” he said. “All of us involved in the oil industry are aware of the role the local railroad played – and continues to play – in keeping our product moving,” said Bill Schroll, manager of the Phillips 66 Santa Maria Refinery located on the Nipomo Mesa. “We are delighted to help educate residents and areas visitors about the rich history of the railroads and their role on the Central Coast, including the dynamic partnership that continues between our industries,” he said.[74]

Ponca: A Core Asset. Phillips CEO Greg Garland told members of the Bartlesville Chamber of Commerce on August 27, 2013 that the refinery at Ponca is a 'core asset' of Phillips 66. The refinery in Ponca City "is making very good money for us," Garland told his Bartlesville audience. Garland added that he expects gas demands in the U.S. to decline by 20 percent in the next 10 years, but that demand for refined products in South America and Africa will more than offset that decline.
