Neste Oil to invest 500 million euros in Finland, cut 250 jobs

October 8, 2014

(Reuters) – Finland’s Neste Oil on Tuesday said it plans to invest about 500 million euros ($631 million) to boost and integrate production at its two refineries in Finland.

Neste said it would also shut down or outsource some operations, which it expects to lead to a reduction of about 250 jobs.

“Given the substantial overcapacity that exists in the oil refining sector in Europe, we need to look at a broad range of solutions for improving our competitiveness and securing the foundation of our future operations and growth,” Neste chief executive Matti Lievonen said in a statement.
