Description

bp was exploring the possibility of converting its Cherry Point facility in Washington State to produce sustainable aviation fuel. bp had signed an agreement with Honeywell to use its Ecofining technology at 5 sites around the globe, including Cherry Point.

Local news outlets reported the project would cost around $1.5 bn.

The Cherry Point project has been the subject of pushback from the Lummi Nation, a local Native American tribe.

In June 2024, bp said it was “scaling back plans for the development” of the project, in line with “bp’s drive to simplify its portfolio.”
