The refinery, which is the core of the company’s activities, is located in Agios Theodoros, Corinth, about 70 km from the center of Athens. Together with the auxiliary facilities and the fuel distribution facilities, it is the largest purely private industrial complex in Greece and is considered one of the most modern refineries in Europe with a degree of complexity of 11.54 (Nelson Complexity Index).
