Total Antwerp Refinery Visit
After more than five years of work and capital expenditure of more than €1 billion, Antwerp — Total’s largest refining and petrochemicals complex in Europe — has completed its transformation. The complex is composed of a refinery that processes 338,000 barrels of crude oil per day, a petrochemical plant that manufactures base chemicals and a facility that produces polymers.
It has been completely reorganized to meet three objectives: respond to market demand by manufacturing more light products that meet the strictest environmental standards, make the complex more flexible so it can use the most cost-advantaged feedstocks available and increase synergies between refining and petrochemicals.
With its 1,700 employees, Antwerp is poised to become one of Total’s most competitive complexes. More information about Antwerp refinery here.
