The Refinery is the gas extraction building for Terran. When constructed on top of a Vespene Gas Geyser, it allows the Terran player to collect Vespene Gas by sending SCVs into it. SCVs collect 4 gas at a time and return it to the nearest Command Center until the geyser is depleted. Refineries can only be built on Vespene Gas Geysers and are the only way a Terran player can mine Vespene Gas.
