Notes to Editors:

  1. FuelsEurope represents the interest of 42 companies operating refineries in the EU. Members account for almost 100% of EU petroleum refining capacity and more than 75% of EU motor fuel retail sales. www.fuelseurope.eu
  2. UKPIA represents eight oil refining and marketing companies that operate the six major oil refineries in the UK. UKPIA members supply 33% of UK primary energy needs and source over 85% of the transport fuels used. They also own around 1,800 of the 8,591 filling stations in the UK.
  3. Efficiency is also important in the refining process itself. Independent studies have shown that UK and EU refineries have achieved world leadership in terms of efficient use of energy and lower carbon intensity from production activities.
  4. The EU refining industry plays an important role as a secure, reliable and resilient provider of energy, in the form of its fuel products, to the EU economy. Petroleum products supply 90% of mobility, are a key contributor to living standards and are intrinsically linked to business value chains and economic growth. They also supply 2/3 of the raw material to the EU petrochemical industry which is converted into lightweight plastics, insulation materials and other essential components of the low carbon economy.
