The Paulínia Refinery was inaugurated on May 12, 1972, soon after Paulínia emancipated politically from the city of Campinas. Its construction began in July 1969, and was completed in a thousand days, which today is a benchmark for the oil industry. The area where it is now installed belonged to the former São Francisco Farm and was divided and donated by the city of Paulínia.
The city was strategically selected for the construction of that which is currently Brazil's biggest refinery. Paulínia is 118 km away from the capital city, São Paulo. Its location, in addition to allowing for greater ease for production outflow, is in an area of great logistic facilities, with quick access to the main highway and railway transportation routes and air terminals in the state of São Paulo.
The Paulínia Refinery went on stream on February 2, 1972, three months before its inauguration. Back then, it used to process some 20,000 cubic meters of oil per day (126,000 barrels).
