SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Shell plans to shut its hydrocracker and continuous catalytic (naphtha) reformer (CCR) at its 500,000 bbl/day Bukom refinery in Singapore from the end of July for scheduled maintenance, an industry source said on Wednesday.
The hydrocracker, which is estimated to have a capacity of around 36,000 bbl/day, and the CCR unit are expected to be shut for three to four weeks, the source added.
A Shell spokesperson said: “It is our policy not to discuss maintenance schedules. Equipment maintenance is planned well in advance, regularly reviewed and coordinated with our needs to supply customers and to keep our equipment running in a safe manner.”
