SINGAPORE (ICIS)--PetroChina has completed its $1bn (€690m) purchase of a 50% stake in UK-based INEOS’ European refining operations, the Chinese state-owned firm said in a statement on the Shanghai stock exchange on Monday.
The Grangemouth refinery processes around 210,000 bbl/day of crude oil and provides fuel to Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland, the company said in an earlier statement.
The Lavera refinery processes 210,000 bbl/day of crude oil. The refinery supplies fuel via pipeline to France, Switzerland and southern Germany, it said.
Both sites will remain integrated into INEOS' downstream petrochemical production after the completion of the deal, the statement added.
