Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery is located on New York Harbor in Linden, N.J., and processes mainly light, low-sulfur crude oil. Bayway refining units include one of the world’s largest fluid catalytic cracking units, two hydrodesulfurization units, a reformer, an alkylation unit, and other processing equipment. The refinery produces a high percentage of transportation fuels, such as gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel, as well as petrochemical feedstocks, residual fuel oil and home heating oil. The facility distributes refined products to East Coast customers via barges, trucks, pipelines, and railcars.  Bayway also has a polypropylene plant that produces 775 million pounds/year.

Standard Oil Trust began building the refinery in 1907. After nearly a year and a half of construction, the first oil was processed on January 2, 1909. Bayway has operated continuously since that day more than a century ago. 

In the course of its existence, Bayway has been the home to countless innovations including the birth of commercial petrochemical industry in 1919 with isobutyl alcohol and butyl rubber in the 1930’s.

Bayway Refinery earned its first ENERGY STAR in 2012 after completing two critical projects - the Vacuum Crude Unit furnace replacement project and replacement of its Sulfur Processing facilities. These projects allowed Bayway to achieve a four-number reduction in the Energy Intensity Index (EII™) rating.

The Bayway Refinery continues to enhance energy efficiency through industry expert energy assessments; proactive energy benchmarking and tracking; installing advanced furnace controls; maintaining a steam trap performance program; and focusing on reliable and stable operations.
