Chevron Submits Permit Application to Build Base Oil Manufacturing Plant
Chevron, an integrated energy company, has submitted an environmental permit application to the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality for the construction of a premium base oil facility at the company's Pascagoula refinery.
The facility is expected to produce approximately 25,000 barrels per day of premium base oil for use in manufacturing lubricants, such as motor oils for consumer and commercial uses. Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2009 and conclude in 2011.
