We are New Zealand's only oil refinery and we have a reputation
as one of Asia Pacific's safest and most reliable refineries.
So what is it exactly that we do? To put it simply, crude
oil bought by our customers is shipped to our deep-water port at
Marsden Point, near Whangarei, where we refine it into high quality
transport fuels for New Zealand. And that's a big job.
- all of the country's jet fuel
- nearly 80% of diesel
- around half of all petrol
- between 75 and 85% of bitumen for roading
- all fuel oil for ships
- sulphur for farm fertiliser
- and we even put the fizz in fizzy drinks!
What we do - all day, everyday - helps keep New Zealand's
economy buzzing and Kiwis going places. We were one of the first
companies ever listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange and today
we are a solid investment for nearly 4000 small and corporate
investors. We are a solid contributor to Northland's 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.
We're proud to be supporting our country and we do it while
caring greatly for:
- The local environment
- Our Northland community
- Our people
In 2011 we celebrated 50 years of fuelling the country's needs
and keeping New Zealanders on the move. Fifty years of refining is
a major milestone for our business and we've come a long way since
starting out in January 1961.
Our brand book explains more about who we are, why
that's important and our commitments to our country, customers and
shareholders, our people and community.
Join us on our journey to fuel New Zealand's future.
Refining NZ is proposing bringing bigger cargoes of crude into
Marsden Point to reduce freight costs and improve the refinery's
ability to compete with imported fuels. For this to be possible
some harbour dredging and channel realignment would be
