In 2018, our Cherry Point refinery became the first refinery in the Pacific Northwest to manufacture renewable diesel fuel by co-processing biomass-based feedstocks alongside traditional feedstocks. This project has helped bp reduce the CO₂ emissions from our Cherry Point diesel.
Cherry Point can process roughly 250,000 barrels of crude oil per day, and it is the biggest supplier of jet fuel to the Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver International airports. In 2019, bp completed a 22-month modernization project at Cherry Point to help reduce source emissions and improve efficiency.
In October 2021, we announced plans for a $269 million investment in three projects at Cherry Point, aimed at improving the refinery’s efficiency, reducing its carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions and increasing its renewable diesel production capability. Expected to create more than 300 local jobs over the next three years, this investment is aligned with our aims to be net zero across our operations by 2050 or sooner and to reduce the carbon intensity of the products we sell by 50% by 2050 or sooner.
