Our most important task is to supply the market with effecient, environmentally adapted oil products. We invest continuously to minimize the environmental impact of the products and the refinery operations.
By operating our refineries, we provide 4,000 jobs to their communities in Sweden and Morocco. Our modernization efforts in the last few years have positioned us in an extremely good position and are particularly proud of that our Swedish refineries are among the most modern European refineries.
Through our Preem Petroleum subsidiary, we are the largest Oil Company in Sweden. Preem's two oil refineries in Lysekil and Gothenburg constitute about 80% of the refinery capacity in Sweden and about one-third the capacity of the entire Nordic Region. The refined products are for both export and Swedish inland market.
Preem is the biggest supplier of MK-1 diesel on the Swedish market. It has a sulphur content of less than 5 ppm (parts per million), significantly lower than the max 50 ppm that has been the requirement in Europe since 2005.
