  • Description

    A NEW OIL REFINERY, CAPABLE OF HANDLING FIVE MILLION TONS OF OIL A YEAR, IS TO BE OPENED ON MONDAY AT EUROPOORT, ROTTERDAM, HOLLAND. THE PLANT IS ONE OF THE MOST MODERN IN THE WORLD, AND IS THE THIRD LARGEST REFINERY IN THE EUROPOORT COMPLEX.

    THE NEW REFINERY IS OWNED BY THE BRITISH PETROLEUM COMPANY, AND IS OF PARTICULARLY COMPACT CONSTRUCTION, TAKING UP ONLY A FRACTION OF THE SPACE USED BY REFINERIES OF SIMILAR CAPACITY.

    ALTHOUGH THE PLANT IS COMPLETE, CONSTRUCTION WORK IS STILL GOING ON TO EXTEND THE HARBOUR SIDE OF THE REFINERY. EVENTUALLY, TANKERS UP TO 200,000 TONS WILL BE ABLE TO DOCK THERE.

    THE OPENING CEREMONY IS TO BE PERFORMED BY THE DUTCH FOREIGN MINISTER, DR. J.M. LUNS.
