Creating value from heavy crude oil
Our core competence is to refine extra heavy crude oils into a balanced mix of naphthenic specialty oils and bitumen products that meet global demand patterns
Making the most of every drop of oil
Every year, 2,5 million tonnes tons of bitumen and naphthenic specialty oils are manufactured in our refineries. The production is carefully monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Hydrotreatment – one of our specialities
Few oil companies hydrotreat their distillates as rigorously as we do. How does it work? The distillate is mixed with hydrogen gas at high pressure and temperature over a catalyst bed in the reactor. This 'treatment' removes sulphur and nitrogen, while also reducing aromatic content. The result is a very clean product – ideal for a great many applications.
Health and safety first
At Nynas, we train and inform our employees at regular intervals in all relevant safety measures and environmental aspects. Our production facilities are checked and serviced regularly and comply with the toughest health and safety standards, which you can read about under Environment
