Worley wins contract to build Phillips 66 renewable fuels facility


Industrial engineering solutions company Worley has secured a front-end engineering services contract from Phillips 66 to convert its San Francisco refinery in Rodeo, California, USA into one of the world’s largest renewable fuels-manufacturing facility.

The contract will see Worley provide front-end engineering design services for the facility, which will be executed by the company’s North America West team with support from Worley’s Global Integrated Delivery team.

Worley CEO Chris Ashton said the project will reconfigure the refinery to produce up to 2.5 billion litres per year of renewable transportation fuels from used cooking oils, fats, greases and vegetable oils, making it one of the world’s largest facilities of its kind.

“As a global company headquartered in Australia, this project aligns with our strategic focus on sustainability and delivering a more sustainable world,” Mr Ashton continued.

“We are pleased that Phillips 66 has engaged Worley in this important renewable fuels project and look forward to supporting Phillips 66’s energy transition goals, while also supporting Worley’s strategic focus on future fuels.”
