Vitol Refining Group BV (VPR) is capable of processing a flexible blend of crude oil and condensate to produce naphtha, jet fuel, gas oil and residuals. Acquired by Vitol in July 2017, VPR is a wholly owned Vitol subsidiary. The facility was previously owned by Koch HC Partnership BV and has expanded its refining capacity by more than 20 percent since it was built in 1993.
Located at the heart of Rotterdam’s oil and petchem industry, near the village of Rozenburg in the Netherlands, the splitter is strategically located to service customers across the region.
Originally constructed as a simple condensate splitter in December 1993, expansion and optimisation over the last two decades increased capacity from 65 kbpd to 80 kbpd. The further addition of a naphtha splitting unit in 2008 has seen refining capacity increase to 85 kbpd.
VPR operates to the highest international HSE safety standards and its facility holds a strong track record with over 11 years without a Lost Time Accident.
