Document Description
The Tesoro Refining and Marketing Company LLC is proposing the Los Angeles Refinery Integration and Compliance Project. In June 2013, Tesoro purchased the adjacent BP West Coast Products LLC Carson Refinery which, as part of the proposed project, will be more fully integrated with the Tesoro Los Angeles Refinery - Wilmington Operation to form the Tesoro Los Angeles Refinery (Refinery). The Refinery includes: (1) the Wilmington Operations located at 2101 East Pacific Coast Highway in the Wilmington District of the City of Los Angeles; and (2) the Carson Operations, which is the former BP Carson Refinery located at 2350 East 223rd Street in the City of Carson. In addition to further Refinery integration, the proposed project is designed to comply with federally-mandated Tier 3 gasoline specifications and with State and local regulations mandating emission reductions. The Los Angeles Refinery Integration and Compliance Project is expected to substantially reduce greenhouse gas, sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter emissions at the Refinery. This will be accomplished by reconfiguring the combined Refinery complex to enable shutting down the Fluid Catalytic Cracking Unit (FCCU) at the Wilmington Operations, by installing interconnecting pipelines, and by reconfiguring the combined Refinery complex to improve the gasoline to distillate production ratio from the integrated Refinery in order to expeditiously respond and adjust to ongoing changes in market demand for various types of petroleum products. Heat recovery will be optimized by installing new heat exchangers and modifying specified units to further minimize criteria pollutant and GHG emissions. All new and modified stationary sources with emission increases will be required to comply with Best Available Control Technology (BACT) requirements in South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Rule 1303. Additionally marine vessel emissions will be reduced due to the construction of six new 500,000 barrel tanks at the Carson Crude Terminal and replacing two existing 80,000 barrel tanks with 300,000 barrel tanks at the Wilmington Operations.
