Exxon to plan shutdown of the biggest UK refinery

September 16/2010

(Bloomberg) -- Exxon Mobil Corp. plans to shut a crude unit at its Fawley refinery, the U.K.s biggest, for maintenance early next year, two people with knowledge of the work said.


The halt is scheduled to start in the first quarter and last about four weeks, the people said, declining to be identified because the information is confidential. A powerformer, which makes blending components for gasoline, will also be idled for repairs during the same time, they said.


The refinery can process about 320,000 barrels of oil a day and supplies 15 percent of Britains petroleum products, according to the countrys Petroleum Industry Association. Refiners regularly halt equipment for inspections and repairs to prevent problems and ensure efficient operations.
