South Shields Refinery is a large refining complex orbiting the Planet Hartlepool. The Independent Miners Guild was the first to discover the Newcastle system, in mid 588 AS, and started construction of South Shields in 590 A.S., when Bretonian corporations were only just starting to explore Newcastle and evaluate its resources.
The refinery mainly purifies water and oxygen from the nearby Galloway Ice Cloud, seperating the Hydrocarbons impurities and reclaiming them for further processing. It also manufactures a small amount of Deuterium and H-Fuel, using resources mined from the atmosphere of Hartlepool.
