BP is one of the world’s leading international oil and gas companies, providing its customers with fuel for transportation, energy for heat and light, retail services and petrochemicals products for everyday items.
The refinery also is the world’s largest supplier of calcinated coke (2,700 tons per day) to the world’s aluminum industry. In fact, one in six aluminum cans is made using BP Cherry Point’s calcinated coke. With all this capacity, it’s easy to see how the BP Cherry Point Refinery plays a critical role in BP’s production and distribution of energy for the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
The Clean Gasoline Unit came online at BP Cherry Point in 2004. This $115 million project was designed to produce a nearly sulfur-free gasoline, exceeding all current and impending quality regulations. By developing this new, cleaner gasoline, we help remove 620 tons of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions each year — the equivalent of 40,000 fewer cars on the road each day.
