The End of Coryton

It’s been on the cards for a while since Petroplus went bust – but a sad day for refining in the UK. Remember some interesting projects at Coryton.

The cost-effectiveness and over-capacity arguments leave me wondering about strategic dependency on wherever the cost-effective capacity remains – what is that, just 4 or 5 liquid fuel refinery complexes left in the UK ? (Fawley, Pembroke, Grangemouth, Stanlow, Carrington, Humberside and Teesside, a couple of which only do chemical intermediates, and a couple more also in doubtful commercial operations ?)
