Your Energy Hive

Fuelling NZ for over 50 years

We are New Zealand's only oil refinery and have a reputation as one of Asia Pacific's safest and most reliable refineries.

Crude oil bought by our oil company customers (BP, Mobil, Z Energy) is shipped to our deep-water port at Marsden Point, near Whangarei for refining into high quality transport fuels for New Zealand.

As a critical piece of national energy infrastructure we are responsible for supplying:

  • Around 85% of New Zealand's demand for jet fuel
  • Around 67% of diesel
  • Around 58% of petrol
  • All fuel oil for ships

We also provide sulphur for farm fertilizer and CO2 for the carbonated drinks industry.

We were one of the first companies ever listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange and as an NZX top 50 listed company, are a solid investment for around 5000 small and corporate investors.

We are a proud contributor to the Northland economy. We employ over 300 staff and for every job at the Refinery, we create another two in Northland and a further six across New Zealand.

As the major supplier of oil products we're proud to be supporting our country and we do it while caring greatly for:

  • The local environment
  • Our Northland community
  • Our people

Crude Shipping Project

A series of detailed environmental and other studies have been carried out to determine the impact of the refinery's proposal to bring bigger parcels of crude to Marsden Point.  Consultation with Tangata Whenua and key stakeholders has been carried out since 2014 including two rounds of public consultation in March 2015 and March 2017. In August an application for resource consent was lodged with the Northland Regional Council.
