A DECC spokesperson said:

“It is disappointing that PWC has been unable to find a buyer for Coryton. This is particularly bad news for the workers at Coryton.

The Job Centre Plus Rapid Response Service is available to support individual employees to re-enter the job market. Coryton’s workforce is highly skilled and well-positioned to take advantage of new opportunities.

We want to reassure people that there will not be any impact on fuel supply from this development. Continuing jetty operations at Coryton means that there should be no loss of supply through the terminal to London and the South East.

Closure of the refinery reflects overcapacity in the European refining sector and a number of refineries have closed across Europe in recent years.

We will continue to keep in close contact with the administrators PWC who are looking at further options for the future of the facility”.
