    I stumbled across this abandoned oil refinery in Imperia last week, totally unexpected so it was a decent mooch, pretty stripped and bare but a few nice items still remained.

    Due to the surprise find luckily I had my camera but not my tripod so please forgive the blurry images from inside.

    The place was huge, the only noises been the road outside and a pump which was running to empty the flooded basements, again which looked like it covered a huge area.

    Details I've struggled to find about this building, but with a little help from google translate I've managed to find a few snippets:

    I don't that have much experience with Oil refinery's so if somebody sees a mistake I've made with identifying parts please let me know
