The Variel and Topanga refinery was an abandoned oil refinery in Los Angeles. It was located in the north region of the city.
When Jack Bauer realized that someone was trying to kill Chloe O'Brian and frame him, he told her to meet him at the abandoned oil refinery located in Variel and Topanga. He instructed her to wait for him by the large cooling tanks in the back of the refinery.
Shortly before 8:00am, Jack arrived in a helicopter with Derek Huxley, while Chloe arrived in a cab. After meeting in the refinery, a group of hitmen arrived pursuing Chloe. However, Jack quickly dispatched them, after questioning their leader about their intentions for murdering David Palmer and framing him. ("Day 5: 7:00am-8:00am")
