Data from the UK Petroleum Industry Association Statistical Review 2011 indicates that in 2009 the UK had the fourth largest refining capacity in Western Europe at over 1.7 million barrels per day.
The UK has an open and competitive market for oil refining, that we consider to be in the best long-term interest of consumers. The Government seek to ensure that the right conditions exist to attract those best able to make investment decisions in the UK's refining sector.
DECC is currently working with the industry to develop a strategic policy framework for the UK refining sector.
