Oil giant Shell announced this month that it is trying to sell refineries in Stanlow, U.K., and in Montreal – both of which include base oil plants. As announced earlier this year, the company is still considering offers for a Harburg, Germany, refinery which also has a base oil plant. Combined, the three base oil plants have capacity to make 14,060 barrels per day.
Shell actually has two German refineries up for sale. The other, in Heider, does not have a base oil plant.
