MRPL declares force majeure on crude supply

April 25/2012

(Reuters) -- State-owned refiner Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited has declared force majeure on crude feedstock supply as well as refined product deliveries after having to shut its 15 million tpa (300,000 bpd) refinery due to a water shortage. A general force majeure has been declared for both incoming and outgoing shipments.

There was no immediate information on when India's Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals (MRPL) could restore operations at its 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) refinery after it shut due to a water supply shortage.  It has declared force majeure and asked for crude shipments to its plant to be deferred.  "The shutdown of MRPL is holding up the market for now," a trader said.  

India's 60,000 bpd Numaligarh refinery has also been temporarily idled following a fire.
