Are refinery plants close to where they get the oil from?

    No, not necessarily. The main concerns in siting an oil refinery is that it be far from residential areas, near access to delivery markets and, for large refineries, that they be near large bodies (or sources) of water. The crude oil that goes into the refineries can be shipped in from any source in the world.

    Oil refineries did develop initially in locations near where the oil was being pumped from the ground. Consequently, there are many refineries in the Texas-Louisiana area. But as the other answer says, refineries now get oil from all over the world.
