Geelong Refinery

Home What we do Refining Geelong Refinery

As part of the acquisition of Shell’s downstream business in Australia in August 2014, Vitol invested in the 120,000 bpd Geelong refinery near Melbourne. As one of the largest and most complex hydrocarbon refineries in Australia, it produces about half of Victoria’s fuel needs and is the only Australian refinery that manufactures avgas, which is used by piston engine planes, and bitumen. It is an integral part of Viva Energy Australia which has, in addition to its refining capacity, a leading retail network of over 900 petrol stations as well as a strong commercial business in mining, agriculture and manufacturing.
