Whitegate refinery near Cork is Ireland's only refinery. It is able to supply around 40% of the Republic of Ireland's fuel needs. In February 1997, the Irish Refining plc took the decision to upgrade the refinery to 75,000 barrels per day. Whitegate Oil Refinery has a throughput of 2.2 million tonnes per annum. The refinery terminal facilities were also recently upgraded.
They can now accommodate tankers up to 100,000 tonnes total displacement at Berth No.1. The second berth caters for smaller coastal tankers up to 3,000 tonnes. Road loading facilities have been installed which cater for a variety of oil products. Two ocean going tugs, with a bollard pull of 49 tonnes each, are retained at Whitegate Refinery in Cork Harbour, to assist in berthing large vessels. There are large holding tanks located on a nearby island in the middle of the bay just out from the village.
