Bloomberg.com: Shell to Shut Dutch Refinery Unit in September, Reuters Says

Posted 23 July 04

Royal Dutch/Shell Group will close an oil-processing unit at its 390,000 barrel-a-day Pernis refinery in the Netherlands in September for four or five weeks of maintenance, Reuters reported, citing an unidentified spokesman.

Shell’s maintenance on the so-called crude distillation unit takes place every four years and will cut production by 195,000 barrels a day, the newswire said.

Maintenance turnarounds in the coming months are also scheduled for BP Plc’s 400,000 barrel a day Rotterdam plant and Total SA’s 149,000 Vlissingen, Netherlands plant, Reuters said, without citing anyone.

A Shell spokeswoman in London contacted by Bloomberg wouldn’t immediately comment on the refinery.
