Chevron Richmond Refinery

Founded in the early 1900s, Chevron’s Richmond Refinery produces gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and lubricants. Since the refinery is located within the corporate boundary of the City of Richmond and on San Francisco Bay, it is subject to extensive state, county, and city regulations aimed at assuring seismic safety and protecting the public and environment. Since 2003, SGH has performed a variety of structural and seismic engineering services for Chevron, including seismic assessments, evaluating damaged structures and foundations, and assisting with obtaining building permits, among others.
