Document Description
The proposed project consists of an Environmental Assessment for the construction of a 38,000 square-foot Refinery Optimization Center (ROC) building to serve as the operations center for most of the Chevron refinery. The ROC building operations will be housed in a modern computer control room and the remainder of the building will house support staff for the operators, computer infrastructure, and communications. The building will be staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The daytime shifts will employ approximately 65 personnel, while the night-time shifts will employ fewer personnel. The maximum number of persons in the building at any time will not exceed 135. The refinery control operations are currently dispersed into several buildings throughout the subject property. The ROC building is intended to consolidate those functions to one location and replace the existing buildings. All the personnel anticipated to work at the ROC building are current employees performing the same work at other locations on the refinery property.
