The Gulf Refinery at Milford Haven was an oil refinery situated on the Pembrokeshire coast in Wales. The refinery, originally owned by Gulf Oil, was opened in August 1968 by Queen Elizabeth II.[1] Up to 119,000 barrels (18,900 m3) of oil could be processed a day at the facility.[2]

The refinery closed down in December 1997, as part of plans by the Chevron Corporation, by then the owners of Gulf Oil, to withdraw from the downstream oil business in the UK.[3] Today, the site is occupied by the SemLogistics oil depot and the Dragon LNG terminal.[4]
