The Antwerp refinery is our largest facility in Europe and is one of the most energy efficient in the world. It is fully integrated with our chemical business and is the largest hydrocarbon fluids manufacturing site in Europe. In 2018, a new delayed coker unit will start up, upgrading lower-value bunker fuel into higher-value, ultra-low-sulfur diesel.
Fawley, United Kingdom
The Fawley refinery, near Southampton, is the largest in the United Kingdom, accounting for more than 20 percent of the country’s refining capacity. The site also produces lube basestocks and provides feedstocks to our integrated chemical manufacturing plants in Europe.
Our integrated approach enables us to maximize value in the competitive European market.
Our Rotterdam facility is a fully integrated refining and chemical complex. The high-conversion refinery has the processing capability to convert crude oil and other feedstocks into light-oil products and coke. Using proprietary technology to reconfigure the hydrocracker unit, new facilities being built at Rotterdam will enable the site to upgrade lower-value vacuum gas oil into greater volumes of higher-value, ultra-low-sulfur diesel and new production of premium Group II lube basestocks.
