We refine crude oil at the Kwinana Refinery in Western Australia. Crude oil is shipped from locations such as the Middle East, West Africa, New Zealand, Indonesia and north-west Australia.
For more information visit the fuels section of the website.
Located approximately 35 kilometres south-west of Perth, the Kwinana Refinery started operations in 1955. It is the only oil refinery in Western Australia and, with a crude refining capacity of 146 KBD, it is the largest oil refinery in Australia.
The refinery employs about 380 staff and, when in steady-state operations, about 300 contractors. On-going investment in refining technology has resulted in it being Australia’s most flexible refinery, capable of producing cleaner fuels such as BP Ultimate.
Through manufactured products or imports, the refinery supplies most of Western Australia’s fuel needs.
