Our core business


Our daily refining capacity of 176.000 +/- barrels has established us as an experienced, safe and reliable operator.

VARO's production began with the purchase of the Cressier refinery in Switzerland in 2012 and was followed two years later by the purchase of a major share in the Bayernoil refinery in Germany. The Bayernoil refinery is one of Europe's largest and most modern refining facilities.

Both refineries produce and blend a range of oil products sold locally including jet fuel, gasoline and diesel for personal vehicles, fuel to heat houses and bitumen for road construction.


VARO's tank storage capacity is currently 2.3 Mio.m3 in 42 locations across 5 countries*. Our Terminal Network, including storage facilities, spreads across Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and France. Our storage network supplies the marketing and distribution side of our business.
