Humber Refinery

The Humber Refinery is located in Northern Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. The crude oil it processes is supplied primarily from the North Sea and includes light-, low- and medium-sulfur and acidic crude oils. Humber generates a large proportion of gasoline, diesel and aviation fuels. Its fluid catalytic cracking unit/thermal cracking/coking configuration enables substantial volumes of other feedstocks, such as low-sulfur fuel oil and vacuum gas oil, to be processed alongside crude oil to fully use Humber’s conversion capability.

Humber has two coking units with associated calcining plants that upgrade the heavy bottoms and imported feedstocks into light oil products and specialty graphite and anode grade petroleum coke. Approximately 70 percent of the light oils produced in the refinery are marketed in the United Kingdom, with the other products exported worldwide.
