About Us

Located approximately 35km 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 450 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.
