LONDON (ICIS)--The 100,000 bbl/day Ingolstadt refinery in Germany’s Bavaria state will resume production in early September, the insolvency administrator of the facility said on Tuesday.
The plant was one of five European refineries affected by the insolvency of Switzerland-based independent refiner Petroplus earlier this year. In May, oil trading firm Gunvor acquired the Ingolstadt refinery.
Administrator Michael Jaffe said the transfer of the refinery and its related marketing assets to Gunvor had been completed.
Preparations to restart the refinery are underway, with production expected to resume in early September, Jaffe added.
The company said the refinery has a capacity of about 100,000 bbl/day. Petroplus previously assessed the capacity at 110,000 bbl/day.
