SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--South Korean refiner, S-Oil, will be shutting its Onsan 600,000 tonne/year group II base oils refinery in early April for around 25 days, said a source close to the company on Tuesday.
The shutdown coincides with the planned shut down of its crude distillation unit (CDU) and its 28,000 bbl/day No.1 vacuum distillation unit (VDU) at its 565,000 bbl/day Onsan refinery in April this year.
Another 600,000 tonne/year group III base oils refinery is expected to continue operating during the period, the source added.
