18 Jan 2018 08:36NZX
Refining NZ has finished the year strongly with full-year Processing Fee
income at NZD 328.9 million, a 19% increase over prior year (2016 NZD 276.6

The Company achieved a Gross Refinery Margin (GRM) of USD 6.83 per barrel for
the November/December period and captured Processing Fee income of NZD 50.7

Throughput for the November/December period was 7.3 million barrels and total
2017 throughput was 41.7 million barrels.

The Singapore Dubai complex margin for the November/December period was USD
3.67 per barrel, down from the USD 4.73 per barrel margin for the
September/October period. Refining NZ''s uplift over the Singapore Dubai
complex margin was USD 3.16 per barrel in November/December.

The average exchange rate for the November/December period was USD/NZD 0.69.

The refinery to Auckland pipeline is operating at greater throughput than it
was prior to the September leak. This is the result of the November
commissioning of a planned capacity expansion and the regulator''s approval of
a partial increase in the operating pressure following repair of the leak. An
additional capacity increase pending regulatory approval is expected in Q1/2
