Our refined products
Petrol sold in Australia is either refined from crude oil in Australian refineries or imported as a finished product from overseas.
We refine crude oil at the Kwinana Refinery in Western Australia. Crude oil is shipped from locations including, the Middle East, West Africa, New Zealand, Indonesia and north-west Australia.
In 2012 – 13, Australian refineries supplied around 63 per cent of total Australian demand for petroleum products. The remaining 37 per cent of demand was met by imports. These imported products were sourced from over 20 countries, mainly from Asia.
Products manufactured at our refinery include:
- petrol: unleaded, premium unleaded, BP Ultimate and BP Opal
- diesel fuels
- aviation fuels, including jet fuel and aviation gasoline
- fuel oil
- autogas, including propane and butane
