- Location: Kalundborg in Denmark
- Capacity: 5.5 million tons/annum & 110,000 bbl/day
- Nelson Complexity:
- CDU, 110,000 bbl/day
- Diesel Desulphurisation, 20,000 bbl/day
- Visbreaking unit
- Crude Oil:
- Refined Products:
- The refinery primarily processes various crude oils and condensates from the North Sea, which are brought in by ship.
- Condensate comes chiefly from the Sleipner area via Statoil’s gas processing plant at Kårstø north of Stavanger.
- petrol, jet fuel, diesel oil, propane, heating oil and fuel oil.
- Kalundborg delivers petrol and diesel oil with less than 50 ppm (0.005%) of sulphur.
- Countries around the Baltic represent the principal market for products from the refinery.
- The fertiliser plant converts sulphur and nitrogen from the desulphurisation process for oil products into liquid ammonium thiosulphate (ATS). The result has been a substantial reduction in emissions of sulphur and nitrogen oxides from the refinery.

- The refinery began to produce agricultural fertiliser in 2000, utilising a completely new facility designed in cooperation with Denmark’s Haldor Topsøe Ltd.
- Built at a cost of DKK 400 million, the Synflex facility came on stream in the summer of 2002 with an annual capacity of about one million tonnes of sulphur-free diesel oil (defined as 10 parts per million of sulphur, or 0.001%).
