The Oil Refining Industry is both fascinating and complex. There are many parts to what we do and some surprising aspects along the way, such as the fact that we supply elemental sulphur to the fertiliser industry and carbon dioxide to the carbonated beverages industry.


But more importantly, as New Zealand's only oil refinery we are the country's leading supplier of oil products. We provide 70% of the domestic market's petrol, 84% of the diesel, 83% of the jet fuel, 100% of the fuel oil and 75% of the bitumen that goes on our roads.

There's a lot of history behind our company and a huge amount of technology within our operation, today and planned for the future. And there are always many questions to be asked of the entire process. Here we attempt to answer as many as we can.
