Phillips 66 has 15 refineries globally and 2.2 million barrels a day of capacity. "When we think about our refining business we like to think about it in four segments. One is the Mid-Continent, about 21% of our capacity is there. Margins have been very strong in this area, as you know. Our largest region is the Gulf Coast, about 33% of our capacity is there.We have large economy of scale here. We have very complex refineries on the Gulf Coast. The Western US and Pacific region is about 20%, includes our interests in the Melaka refinery.The West Coast has typically had high margins historically, but the last couple years has been challenged in part due to the economic slowdown in California."

Borger Refinery

The Borger Refinery is located in Borger, Texas, in the Texas Panhandle about 50 miles north of Amarillo and includes an NGL fractionation facility. The refinery’s gross crude oil processing capacity is 146 MBD, and the NGL fractionation capacity is 45 MBD. The refinery facilities include coking, fluid catalytic cracking, hydrodesulfurization and naphtha reforming that enable it to produce a high percentage of transportation fuels. As a result of the business venture with Cenovus Energy, ConocoPhillips has a 50 percent interest in the refinery. The refinery processes primarily medium sour crude oil and natural gas liquids delivered through pipelines from West Texas, the Texas Panhandle, Wyoming and Canada. The Borger Refinery also can receive foreign crude oil via company-owned and common-carrier pipeline systems. It produces a high percentage of transportation fuels, such as gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel, as well as coke, NGL and solvents. Pipelines move refined products to West Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and the Mid-Continent Region. The Borger refinery is operated by Phillips in a 50-50 joint venture with Cenovus Energy Inc.[4][5] Borger Refinery Photo by: Philip Klein All Rights Reserved.

March 26, 2014: Phillips Pays $500,000 Fine for Clean Air Violations at Borger Refinery and Four Other Refineries

CSP Daily News reported on March 26, 2014 that Phillips will pay a $500,000 penalty for violations of the Clean Air Act at the Borger Refinery in Borger, Texas, the Lake Charles Refinery in Westlake, La., the Wood River Refinery in Roxana, Ill., the Alliance Refinery in Belle Chasse, La., the Sweeny Refinery in Old Ocean, Texas, and several terminals across the country. Phillips also agreed to retire more than 21 billion sulfur credits that could have been used in the production of gasoline, which could potentially lead to significantly less pollution from vehicles. In a administrative settlement agreement, the EPA alleged that the company generated invalid sulfur credits between 2006 and 2012 and that Phillips failed to comply with recordkeeping, reporting, sampling and testing requirements at the five refineries. EPA discovered these violations during facility inspections and through a review of company records, which included the results of third-party company audits required by the Clean Air Act.[10]
