Fire shuts down refinery ahead of planned maintenance

August 09/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Bharat Petroleum Corp will shut its 120,000 barrels-per-day (Mbpd) joint venture Bina refinery from mid-August for 45 days, a month ahead of the previous plan after a minor fire at the delayed coker, reported Hydrocarbonprocessing with reference to two sources.

The refiner has shut the delayed coker after a fire during the weekend and has decided to advance the September shutdown, one of the sources said. The sources did not wish to be identified as they are not authorized to speak to media.

During the 45-day shutdown, BPCL will carry out modifications at various units to raise the capacity of the plant to 156 Mbpd

BPCLs head of refineries R. Ramachandran did not respond to calls from Reuters seeking comment.

The Bina refinery is operated by Bharat Oman Refineries Ltd (BORL), a 50-50 joint venture between Oman Oil Co and state-run BPCL.
