Disused Jetties at Coryton Oil Refinery
Coryton Refinery is a disused oil refinery on the banks of the River Thames between Shell Haven Creek and Hole Haven Creek, which separates Canvey Island from the mainland.
It was a part of the Port of London and was the last of the three major refineries on the Thames Estuary to remain in operation, following the closure of Shell Haven and BP Kent. Output was delivered by road, sea and rail, and it was linked to Stanlow Refinery in North West England by the UK Oil Pipeline LinkExternal link . Coryton Refinery ceased production in June 2012. The site is being turned into an industrial hub to be called Thames Enterprise Park.
