The refinery at Tobruk is located on the coast in north eastern Libya[1] about 160 kilometres west of the Egyptian border.[2] It came on stream in 1985.[3]

The refinery processes oil from the Agoco-operated Sarir field.[4] The refinery is part of a larger complex that includes one of Libya's smaller oil export terminals.[5]

Capacity and production

The refinery has a crude refining capacity of 20,000 barrels per day (bpd).[6] and the export terminal a capacity of 51,000 bpd.[7]

Tobruk restarted operations in mid-September 2011 following the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi.[8]

Ownership

The refinery is operated by the Arabian Gulf Oil Company (Agoco),[9] a subsidiary of the Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC).[10]
