Būtingė oil terminal is an oil terminal near the village of Būtingė in northern Lithuania. The oil terminal is situated in the municipality of Palanga, on the coast of the Baltic Sea, close to the border with Latvia. It lies near the mouth of the Šventoji River. The project, the first of its kind on this coast, sits on 1,239 hectares on the Baltic Sea coast north of the port of Klaipėda.

The Butinge oil terminal is not accessible to travelers. Of which 0.5 miles to the coast is a no-fly zone.

The refinery was planned and designed as a single-point offshore mooring with a capacity to offload up to 4932 m3/h. The mooring is in the form of a floating buoy. There is a pipeline, pumping stations, and an offshore terminal. The facilities are capable of handling 8 million tons of crude oil for exports and 5 to 6 million tons for import. An offshore submarine pipeline measuring 3 feet (0.91 m) in diameter and 7.5 kilometres (4.7 mi) in length connects to the shore facilities. A 22-inch (560 mm) pipeline connects to three 50,000-cubic-metre (1,800,000 cu ft) oil storage tanks which are floating roof tanks for crude oil storage. Pumping stations and a single-point mooring terminal have also been built. Tanks for storing diesel and oil are on the roof. Pumps load crude oil to tankers and transport the same over a distance of 91.5 kilometres (56.9 mi) to the refinery of ORLEN Lietuva near Mažeikiai.
