Welcome to TOR
Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) Limited is Ghana’s only refinery established in 1963 to enhance the country’s economic, investment and development programs. Crude oil is used as the refinery’s main raw material for production, which is usually imported from neighboring Nigeria and transferred through pipelines to the refinery storage tanks for processing into several finished products for consumption.
The refinery is situated in Tema about 24 kilometers east of the capital, Accra. It was originally named the Ghanaian Italian Petroleum (GHAIP) Company and incorporated as a Private Limited Liability Company under the Companies Ordinance (Cap 193) on December 12, 1960.
It was 100% owned by the ENI Group (Ente Nationalie Indrocarburi) of Italy. The Government of Ghana bought all the shares of GHAIP in April 1977 and became sole shareholder. In 1990 the name was changed to the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR).
