The Refinery is a structure that is built over a Vespene Geyser which allows SCVs to harvest Vespene Gas. Normally an SCV returns 8 gas for trip, but when the available stock of Vespene Gas is depleted the SCV returns 2 gas per trip.
A Refinery is sometimes built on the opponent's geyser to delay gas. Since SCV are vulnerable while building the Refinery is almost always left unfinished by pulling away the SCV. Refineries are the worst building for the purpose of gas steal, since SCVs are the only workers to be vulnerable while building.
