Petroplus Holdings AG was Europe's largest independent oil refiner by capacity. When, the now defunct company, was first formed in 1993 it was known as Petroplus International N.V. being based in the Netherlands. In August 1998, it was listed on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. In April 2005, it was delisted from the Euronext Amsterdam stock exchange when the company was acquired by a holding company. In November 2006, the company went public on the Swiss Stock Exchange.

In December 2011 a $1bn credit line to the company was frozen by its bank lenders. The company was planning to shut down some refineries if negotiations to restore the credit failed. The chief executive said they would do all they could to avoid bankruptcy.  On the 24th of January 2012, Petroplus announced that they are filing for insolvency after it defaulted on $1.75 billion of senior notes and convertible bonds.
