Petroleum company Caltex will close its Kurnell refinery in Sydney in a move that will cost up to 630 jobs.
Caltex said the refinery would be closed in the second half of 2014 to be converted to a “major import terminal” to supply imported fuel for Australian customers.
The closure will eliminate about 330 direct positions, and as many as 300 contracting jobs.
