Massive flare at refinery caused by power cut

September 13/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Several units at Essars 200,000 barrel per day Stanlow refinery in northwest England were shut down following a power outage, reported Hydrocarbonprocessing with reference to a spokesman for the plant.

"Earlier this morning the power supply... to Stanlow from the national grid failed. This has resulted in the shutdown of a number of units on site," the spokesman said in a statement.

The unplanned shutdown at the plant resulted in visible flaring. It was unclear how long the outage would last.

As MRC informed earlier, in April 2017, the purchase of Indian refiner Essar Oil by a consortium led by Russian oil company Rosneft was delayed, because some Indian lenders to Essar had not signed off on the deal. The USD12.9 B deal, in which Rosneft is set to take a 49% stake in Essar and another 49% will be split between commodities trader Trafigura and Russian investor United Capital Partners (UCP), was expected to close that month. Eventually, the deal was closed in August, 2017.
