Immingham Combined Heat and Power Plant (also known as VPI Immingham ) is a combined heat and power, gas-fired power plant adjacent to the Humber Oil Refinery near to South Killingholme North Lincolnshire, England.

The plant opened in 2004 with a 730 MW generating capacity, and was expanded to 1,180 MW in 2009; the station was developed by ConocoPhillips until its sale to Vitol in 2013.

A 734 MW power station was developed at a cost of £350 million by ConocoPhillips and opened in 2004 adjacent to the Humber Oil Refinery. The plant supplied 'waste' steam to both Humber and Lindsey Oil Refinerys, and incorporated auxiliary boilers for steam supply to the refineries.

In 2009 the plant's capacity was raised to 1,180 MW, by the addition of a 285 MW gas turbine, and 200 MW heat recovery steam generator.

In 2013 the plant was acquired by Vitol.
