oil refinery
This is the first moc we built after discovering Bricklink, which made it easy to acquire the elements needed. It took ages to dust and figure out where all the sections went ( we were not taking photo's at that time ).
About this creation
















This was the first part of our town, it now forms part of the industrial area together with the warehouse and container yard. The large oil store's are prone to exploding it's quite funny when one goes.

Quoting Gusto Jones I would like more information on the creation of this lego oil refinery - specifically pieces used. Where can I find this information? thank you, Gusto
sadly I scraped this build a few years ago as it was build without storage in mind so could not be moved easily, the only information I have are more photos. I will try to answer any questions you have about elements of the build.

Quoting Jan Krarup Amazing job. Do you by any chance have a part list for your refinery? I work at Royal Dutch Shell's refinery in Denmark and would like to build one for our 100. anniversary next year. Thank you. jankraru@worldonline.dk
no sorry but any question's you have I will try to answer.

Quoting Danny De Kee Exceptional! I think that the detail is remarkable. Allan, or anyone else that may know, can you tell me what pieces made up the wall(s) of the large oil storage tanks? Wonderful refinery and very inspirational!!
4x3, 2x3 panels, 12x2 plates, 4x2 plates and a load of elastic bands inside holding the whole thing together in tension, thats why they are prone to exploding. a better solution and less stressful to the brick is the one used in my gas works. 5x6 panels held together with plate hinges.

WOW!!! Amazing job! My grandpa worked in one of these, and he once hurt his arm when it blew up. (Or a part of it)

This is really impressive! I never thought an oil refinery could be such a good subject for a MOC. Creative use of pieces and looks superb.

I am not keen on modern structures, but this one!!! Level of details is awesome and they fit together in totaly realistic rafinery.

This is priceless. Every detail is impeccable. This is one of those MOCs that someone not forewarned they are looking at legos may not realize it until zooming in close.

Brilliant. The detail is awesome as is the size!

Amazing, while your attention to detail is maybe not the finest, the sheer size, and complex architecture make up for it! Job well done!

This is the kind of thing I want LEGO to make and sell. I would totally buy this. This would also be PERFECT for making a lego movie.

This is incredible, you've captured all the details and the chaos of a real oil refinery and comprised it in lego scale, great work.

Great work! Im jealous, too. Love the industrial look, and the size as well as the numerous details, tubes, valves, tanks and barrels... Astounding as always- I love your work. Steffen

Outstanding! The first picture looks rather small but the details throughout are excellent. The most impressive part is that this type of structure is one that most people would not spend much time on if building a regular town display. Great work!

I can't begin to tell you how great this is. I live near a power substation that I always think I should try to Lego-fy, and it's full of mysterious apparatus and greebly structures, all very impressive and industrial-looking, just like this. The specifics are different, but the overall efect is just the same. Outstanding!

Wow. Attention to detail, scale, parts usage... all brilliant. Love it! (although I agree with Garth that it would be better on fire with people running and screaming... but that's just me) ~ Chris.

You need more pipes with flames shooting out of them and shouldn't parts of it be exploding. Oh, wait, it's not in Micropolis. Nice refinery, even if it isn't on fire. Love that Bricklink. see ya. garth
