A Win for Richmond
We are excited to announce that the
Richmond City Council voted 5-0
(with 2 abstentions) on July 29 to
approve the Refinery Modernization
Project. We want to thank the City
Council members who supported modernization, and
we look forward to starting an important project that
will put more than 1,000 people to work. We also want
to recognize the more than 11,000 residents, labor
union members, business partners, non-profit
organizations and Chevron employees who actively
supported modernization, many of whom attended
Planning Commission and City Council meetings to
demonstrate that Richmond deserves a newer, safer,
cleaner refinery. This project would not be possible
without your help and support.
Un triunfo para Richmond
Nos da mucho gusto anunciar que el 29 de julio el Concejo
Municipal de Richmond votó 5 a 0 (con la abstención de 2
miembros) para aprobar el Proyecto de Modernización de la
refinería. Queremos agradecer a los miembros del Concejo
Municipal que apoyaron la Modernización y estamos ansiosos
por empezar este importante proyecto que empleará a más de
1,000 personas.
También queremos reconocer a los más de 11,000 residentes,
miembros de sindicatos laborales, socios comerciales,
organizaciones sin ánimo de lucro y empleados de Chevron que
apoyaron la Modernización, muchos de los cuales asistieron a
las reuniones de la Comisión de Planeamiento y del Concejo
Municipal para demostrar que Richmond se merece una
refinería más nueva, más segura y más limpia. Este proyecto no
hubiese sido realidad sin su ayuda y apoyo.
This project represents a win for the community, our
workforce and the refinery. Modernization as approved
will mean a decrease in emissions, a safety program
that far exceeds regulatory requirements and a $90
million investment in Richmond and North Richmond
— commitments that reflect input from residents and
represent significant compromises on our part.

nuestra fuerza de trabajo y para la refinería. El proyecto de
Modernización aprobado significa una disminución de
emisiones, un programa de seguridad que excede los requisitos
reglamentarios y una inversión de $90 millones de dólares en
Richmond y North Richmond: compromisos que reflejan la
respuesta de los residentes y representan esfuerzos importantes
de nuestra parte.
We will now move quickly to resolve ongoing legal
issues related to the original project by early 2015. At
that time, and barring further appeals, we could begin
construction, which will take about 18-24 months to
Procederemos con rapidez para resolver los asuntos legales

What Modernization
Means for Richmond
The Modernization Project as approved
includes significant community
benefits that will reduce greenhouse
gas emissions, improve public safety
and help put residents to work.
As a result of working together with
city leaders and listening closely to residents, the
project now includes more than 100 conditions
suggested by City of Richmond’s experts. These
conditions will reduce greenhouse gas emissions,
health risks and most criteria air pollutants. The
project also implements important and rigorous safety
enhancements that support our mission to operate
incident free.
In addition to creating more than 1,000 local
construction jobs and 1,300 related jobs, the project
includes a $90 million investment in programs to
improve the quality of life for Richmond residents.
These funds will support college scholarships, job
training, grants for non-profits and an innovative
series of programs to fight climate change. We will
also dedicate 60 acres of refinery land to create the
largest solar installation in Contra Costa County.
The infographic to the right illustrates how these
funds will be used and where residents interested
in modernization jobs can find more information.
