Indian MRPL says it shuts some units at refinery

August 22/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Indias Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd has shut Phase-3 units at its 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) refinery in southern India due to a minor landslide, according to a company statement, as per Reuters.

Phase-3 project comprises a 60,000-bpd crude unit and some secondary units.

"The landslide has affected a pipe rack carrying pipelines between the process units and as a precautionary measure, the units in the Phase-3 complex have been temporarily shut down," the company said.

The other two crude units at the refinery are still in operation, the company said.

A company official said the Phase-3 project has been shut for the last three days.

As MRC informed earlier, in June, Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd will operate its 300,000 barrels-per-day refinery in southern India at about 50 percent capacity due to water shortage.

Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL), is an oil refinery at Mangalore and is a subsidiary of ONGC, set up in 1993. The refinery is located at Katipalla, north from centre of Mangalore city. The refinery was established after displacing five villages of Bala, Kalavar, Kuthetoor, Katipalla, and Adyapadi.
