Richard Howitt MEP (S&D), on the European Oil Refining Crisis

The oil refining sector in Europe is suffering from over-capacity, restructuring and planned closures, and the European Commission held a second conference on the oil refining sector on 26 November. Leading energy journalist, Hughes Belin, met Richard Howitt MEP (S&D), to discuss the European oil refining crisis.

“So everyone here buys the argument about energy security in relation to gas, what about refined oil? Do we really want to allow the people who refine our oil to be in those unstable countries and to be able to hold a pistol to our heads? The same argument applies and it’s about time that people in this place woke up to it”.
