Preem is the largest supplier of petroleum products in Sweden and its two refieneries, Preemraff Göteborg in Gothenburg and Preemraff Lysekil in Lysekil represent two-thirds of Sweden's refining capacity. The Gothenburg refinery is certified according to ISO 14001. The facility produces Liquified petroleum gas, Gasoline, Diesel and Heating oil for both the Swedish and foreign markets.

Construction started in 1965 and refining started in 1967. Originally owned by BP, it was sold to OK Petroleum when BP decided to leave the Swedish market in 1991. In 1994 Sheik Mohammed Al-Amoudi from Saudi Arabia bought OK Petroleum and in 1996 changed the name to Preem Raffinaderi.

The port for crude oil tankers (allowing 19 meters draft) is located around 6 km west, from where there is a pipeline connection. Refined products are shipped from a port near the Preemraff, or by road or rail connection.
