FRANKFURT- Royal Dutch Shell plans to turn its Shell Rheinland refinery site at Wesseling away from crude oil and towards low or zero carbon products from 2025, the German arm of the global oil major said on Thursday.

Wesseling is one of two sites that make up the Shell Rheinland refinery complex. Out of a total 340,000 barrels per day (bpd) capacity, it accounts for 150,000 bpd.

Under Shell's transformation plans, the complex is being turned into a venture called Shell Energy and Chemicals Park Rheinland, focused on renewable energy-derived hydrogen, sustainable aviation fuels and renewable liquefied biogas.

Godorf, the other site, will continue to distil crude oil into mineral oil products under the plans, which have not yet received a final investment decision, Shell said.
