LONDON (ICIS)--South African crude oil refinery SAPREF has been restarted following an unplanned closure in December, a company souce said on Wednesday.
The 180,000 bbl/day refinery in Durban was originally taken off line in late December while repairs were made relating to the supply of crude oil.
During the shutdown a mechanical problem was encountered which prolonged the outage beyond the completion of original repairs, in early January.
The source said the refinery is now operating normally.
SAPREF is 50:50 owned by majors Shell and BP.
