Chevron Refinery Watches Storm

Chevron Refinery Watches Storm

Posted: Updated:
PASCAGOULA, Miss. -

The Chevron Pascagoula facility is almost a city unto itself and like any city they're watching this storm very closely.  One of the first things you'll notice around the plant is brick walls. They' aren't just there for looks--they also serve a function in protecting the perimeter from storm surge. Since the plant is right on the water that could be an issue. There are also metal walls that can be moved into place to help secure the area.  Right now the facility is still running 24-7 but the plant's hurricane team met today to discuss the storm.

 “Which are made up of several experts in this field are continuing to monitor the path and the forecast,” says Public and Governmental Affairs Manager Alan Sudduth.  Different production areas can be shut down depending on the storm's intensity, path and what's best for the safety of the people who work there.

“Every storm differs as to where it makes landfall and all of those have an impact as far as our production here and safety of our employees,” says Sudduth.
