CALGARY, Alberta, Nov 19 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s (RDSa.L: Quote, Profile, Research) refinery in Montreal will ramp up to its full 130,000 barrel a day output by midweek after a longer than expected maintenance turnaround, a spokeswoman for the company said on Monday.
The refinery has been undergoing a scheduled maintenance turnaround that began Oct. 5. The work was to have been completed by Nov. 5.
Denita Davis, a spokeswoman for Shell, declined to specify why the restart had been delayed.
The Montreal East refinery, one of three the company operates in Canada, produces gasoline, distillates, heavy oils, lubricating oils and other products.
The company also operates a 98,000 bpd refinery near Edmonton, Alberta, and a 72,000 bpd facility at Sarnia, Ontario. (Reporting by Scott Haggett; Editing by Rob Wilson)
