Refinery ships are vessels used for refining tylium that have been used in the colonies since at least as far back as the First Cylon War. During the war, they presumably had the role of replenishing the fuel reserves of Colonial Fleet ships (Blood and Chrome).
Over forty years later the class is used for civilian purposes. At least two of these ships, Daru Mozu and Hitei Kan, are able to escape with Galactica following the Fall of the Twelve Colonies (TRS: Miniseries). During the refugee fleet's ongoing escape from Cylon forces, these ships refine tylium mined by the vessels Monarch and Majahual.
