    Northland locals are feeling the heat as oil refining stops in the region

    Northland locals are feeling the heat as oil refining stops in the region


    Marsden Point oil refinery is set to be converted to a terminal that only handles imported processed fuels.

    It ends six decades of the country having its own ability to make petrol and diesel from crude -- and it will cost about 240 of the company's 300 jobs.

    Whangarei Mayor Sheryl Mai says it's a significant blow to the community -- particularly for those are directly impacted.

    But, she says there are also contractors and maintenance workers who will lose out from this decision.
