BP refinery in Rotterdam restarts diesel production

AMSTERDAM – The BP refinery in Rotterdam, the second largest in Europe after Shell Pernis, is restarting the processing of oil for making diesel, which has become scarce, among other things.

Unions confirm that a single part of the complex has been restarted. The group has confirmed this from London.

In the middle of the energy crisis, this part was discontinued about ten days ago after a malfunction. The entire company was then shut down. In addition, union members are demanding a 6% wage increase.

It is not clear whether the other parts will also return to production for processing.

New consultation

According to the unions, they will hold new talks with BP early next week. They hope for ‘steps’ towards the wage increase and improved working conditions.

BP employs 730 people and processes 400,000 barrels of oil every day.
