The Humber Refinery is located on the east coast of England in North Lincolnshire, United Kingdom, approximately 180 miles north of London. Humber's facilities include crude distilling, naphtha reforming, fluid catalytic cracking, hydrodesulfurization, thermal cracking and delayed coking units. The refinery has two coking units with associated calcining plants, which produce high-value graphite and anode petroleum cokes. It processes crude oil supplied primarily from the North Sea and includes light, low- and medium-sulfur and acidic crude oil. Humber produces a high percentage of transportation fuels. It is the only coking refinery in the United Kingdom, and a major producer of specialty graphite cokes and anode coke. Approximately 70 percent of the light oils produced by the refinery are distributed to customers in the United Kingdom by pipeline, rail car and truck, while the other products are exported to the rest of Europe, West Africa and the United States.

Providing Energy. Improving Lives.

We are excited about the future of energy and our decarbonisation journey. Our Humber Refinery is one of the most energy efficient refineries in Europe and is leading the way in lower-carbon fuels production. Our Humber Refinery was the first in the UK to produce high-performing, advanced second-generation biofuels, at scale, from waste - when Used Cooking Oil (UCO) was introduced to its refining processes in 2017. In 2020, Phillips 66 Limited invested significantly trebling this capacity, with the addition of a new lower carbon fuel module.

One the most exciting opportunities for the Humber Refinery lies in the electric vehicle revolution. One of the products produced by our refinery is high-grade petroleum coke, a carbon-rich residue that remains when other, lighter materials are refined from crude oil. Petroleum coke from our Humber Refinery already has a vital role in supporting advanced manufacturing in the steel recycling and aluminium smelting industries, but now through its unique coke formulations, is also being used across the globe in smart phone and electric vehicle batteries.

Our Humber Refinery's role in the electric vehicle battery market was recognised in the UK Government, Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy. March 2021

Phillips 66 Limited is working with several partners on a number of decarbonisation projects to support the Humber region to meet the UK Government's target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Our advantaged and nimble company is full of seasoned leadership and talented teams making responsible choices to adapt and explore the opportunities the changing market brings. Our employees, suppliers and partners share this vision to provide energy and improve lives. Our hard work, and team work, keeps energy flowing.

We do this while living out our values of safety, honour and commitment; improving lives by providing access to the energy which is essential to a high standard of living and health throughout the UK and the world.
