430 Jobs to go at Caltex's Kurnell refinery

Oil company Caltex has confirmed it will close its Kurnell refinery in Sydney in the second half of 2014, at the expense of at least 430 jobs.

Around another 400 jobs are at risk, with contractors losing their positions as well.

Caltex launched a review of its refining operations last year, which left a cloud over its Brisbane and Sydney refineries.

The company has announced this morning, there will be continued operation at the Caltex’s Lytton refinery in Brisbane, with a focus on necessary operational and financial performance improvements.

Caltex Managing Director and CEO, Julian Segal says the decision has been made for the long term interests of the shareholders.
