Royal Dutch Shell has agreed to sell Stanlow refinery, the UK's second-biggest oil refinery, to India's Essar Energy in a deal worth $1.3bn (814m).

The Stanlow plant near Ellesmere Port employs 960 people and accounts for about 15% of total production from the UK's oil refineries.

Essar said it had no plans to make any redundancies at the plant, which refines 270,000 barrels of oil a day.

The deal is expected to be completed in the second half of this year.

So much for Danny888 claiming quite a few times, hand on heart, and citing his source as a family member high up the heir-achy within Shell, that Stanlow makes a miserly 250,000 per year... working out at a rate of 400,000 USD, it would take them 35 years to even turn a profit looooooooooooool.

I believe Stanlow produces almost 20% of all UK petrol.

250,000 a year profit from 20% of the entire UK supply of petrol means that there really isn't all that much money in petrol. I think Danny had his facts wrong.

Reckon so, interesting that the likes of BPpetrol stations don't even have a mark up on fuel not sure about shell

To be fair, he did say that was the profit on petrol...

However, for more reliable numbers, the Daily Post states, for H1 2010, Stanlow made EBITDA profits of 39m. Whether that is normal, lower or higher isn't stated.
