Billion-dollar expansion of biggest Nordic refinery dropped after climate protests

A planned expansion of oil firm Preem's refinery in Lysekil, Sweden, would cost more than USD 1.69 billion and increase CO2 emissions by over one million tonnes per year. Greenpeace calls it a victory for the climate movement, while Preem says its decision to drop the plans is purely commercial.
