Phillips 66 Humber Refinery
South Killingholme, North Lincolnshire, DN40 3DW
Tel: 01469 555000
Situated on the Humber Estuary at South Killingholme, the refinery came into operation in 1969 with a capacity of about 3 million tonnes.
A unique feature of the refinery is its ability to produce high quality carbon coke from a process using heavy oil residues left over from refining other products. The coke is a vital ingredient in aluminium and steel smelting.
A high proportion of North Sea crudes are processed, which are transported to the Humber Estuary by tankers, offloaded at the Tetney monobuoy and piped ashore to Tetney terminal, and then on to the refinery.
In 2004, construction of a Combined Heat and Power plant was completed, adjacent to the refinery, one of the largest, cleanest and most efficient of its type in Europe.
