SARPOM's refinery in San Martino di Trecate (close to Novara) has operated since 1952. The refinery covers an area larger than one million square meters and produces 250,000 barrels per day. It has a balanced oil capacity of nine million tons per year and a real capacity of 6.7 million tons per year. The Vado Ligure sea terminal in Savona supplies the refinery's crude oil through a 20-inch, 150-km pipeline via a depot in Quiliano.
The Sarpom Refinery is 74.14% owned by ESSO and 25.86% by ERG Petroli.
In Local.Live they retouched the refinery away.
Instead of distillation units and storage tanks there are fields and trees!
This effect you can see at almost every Italian refinery site in LL! (two sites are OK)

(LL) Still a bad job, if you zoom out you can see the complex, if you zoom in, you see the trees....
