Here is news item showing UK has as much risk of refinery closures as US from tough regulations and green policies. Like the US the UK has also closed half its refineries (20 refineries reduced to 10) over the last 40 years.
In the UK only COP Humber refinery has cokers the other 9 refineries are cracking refineries. COP Humber is largest anode and needle coke producer in Europe.
