SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Energy major ExxonMobil’s scheduled turnaround at its integrated refinery and petrochemicals site in Singapore is on track for completion after it underwent a six-week maintenance shutdown from 1 May, a company spokesperson said on Tuesday.
“As communicated earlier, we expect to resume normal operations mid-to-late June,” Karen Wong, spokesperson at ExxonMobil Asia Pacific, told ICIS news.
The company did not provide details as to which plants were involved in the turnaround.
Industry sources had earlier said that the turnaround would likely include a crude distillation unit (CDU) and gasoil hydrodesulphurisation unit of ExxonMobil’s 296,000 bbl/day refinery at Pulau Ayer Chawan (PAC) in ?xml:namespace>
ExxonMobil’s refinery manufactures a wide range of fuels, lubricant basestocks and specialty products, while the chemical plant comprises five integrated units and is a strategic supply pillar for the company’s business operations in the region.
