Production & Logistics
Neste Oil’s Production & Logistics function is responsible for ensuring that the company’s premium-quality products are produced and supplied to customers as reliably and cost-effectively as possible.
Neste Oil’s refineries and plants in five countries around the world produce a comprehensive range of major petroleum products, together with premium-quality NExBTL renewable diesel. Combined output in 2011 totaled 15.2 million tons (13.6 million tons), of which 0.7 million tons (0.3 million tons) comprised NExBTL diesel. Neste Oil’s fleet of 22 vessels and 13 distribution terminals ensure a flexible flow of feedstocks and product shipments.
The completion and start-up of a number of new plants were among Production & Logistics’ most important achievements during 2011. A new renewable diesel refinery was commissioned in Rotterdam in the Netherlands on-schedule in September and a base oil plant in Bahrain in October. An energy efficiency enhancement program was also launched, and good progress was made on ongoing work aimed at improving safety. Capacity utilization rates improved at both the Porvoo and Naantali refineries and output of Diesel Production Line 4 at the Porvoo refinery increased.
Targets for 2012:
- Improve the cost and energy efficiency of all Neste Oil’s production facilities, terminals, and ships
- Improve safety on a continuous basis
- Secure increased operational reliability in terms of refinery availability
- Achieve better flexibility in production and services by developing raw material and product logistics.
