Chevron donates equipment to be turned into reefs

Chevron’s Pascagoula refinery partnered with the Mississippi Gulf Fishing Banks to donate equipment that will be used as artificial reefs offshore.

Five carbon steel structures from a recent refinery project were slated to be recycled when a Chevron employee suggested repurposing the equipment as artificial reefs.

The structures were uncoated and underwent an extensive environmental evaluation before being donated to make sure they will promote a healthy ecosystem.

Chevron also donated $30,000 to the MGFB to support the deployment of the reefs this summer.
