SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s CPC Corp will in mid-January restart the 40,000 bbl/day reformer at its refinery in Kaohsiung, following an unscheduled shutdown that began last month, a company source said on Tuesday.

The reformer converts naphtha into reformate, which is the blending component for gasoline.

CPC shut the unit in mid-December 2010 because of a glitch, according to the source.

“It was a mechanical problem,” he said.
