Jupiter Sulphur LLC, for value-added sulfur products
Jupiter Sulphur LLC is the successful result of a 26-year partnership between Tessenderlo Kerley and major oil company Phillips 66 Oil, processing all its sulfur at two of the oil company's largest refineries.
With its core competency in sulfur processing, Jupiter Sulphur manages production and back-end reclamation better than anyone in the marketplace. Combining the expertise of these two market leaders offers the ultimate in "over the fence" world-class sulfur processing services, upgrading off-gasses into high quality, value-added products.
Off-gasses are uncommon assets normally considered non-performing on any other oil company's balance sheet. However, by harnessing the ability to upgrade undesirables, Jupiter's reliability, flexibility and financial feasibility makes the most of this cooperative effort.
