About Us

Southern Oil Refining (Southern Oil) is a private, 100% Australian owned company, based in Wagga Wagga, NSW, which has been re-refining waste oil since 2001.

Southern Oil re-refines waste lube oil for reuse as lube oil – its best and highest use and a cradle-to-cradle solution.

We produce no waste, reduce the need for oil imports and our product has a significantly smaller carbon footprint than crude base oils – making us a natural partner for organisations that are committed to protecting and enhancing their environmental credentials and reputation.

Southern Oil’s Wagga Wagga plant and Northern Oil Refinery at Gladstone are the only facilities in Australia producing fully re-refined lube oil accredited for use by a major international oil company for global applications.

These re-refineries give Southern Oil the capacity to process over 30% of Australia’s annual waste lube oil production (including 100% of Queensland’s waste lube oil).
