Heide Refinery

Located in northern Germany, the Heide refinery has an annual capacity of 4.5 million tonnes of crude oil and generated a turnover of over €2 billion in 2015. It offers a high degree of production flexibility through optimal crude selection and the marketing and trading, both locally and globally, of a wide array of refined oil products and chemicals.

Heide has now been part of the Klesch Group for over 6 years refining three times as many types of crude as in 2010 and demonstrating leading availability and record low unplanned downtime.

Heide employs 500 workers and is the largest industrial employer in the region.
