SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japans’s JX Nippon Oil & Energy plans to restart the sole crude distillation unit (CDU) at its 136,000 bbl/day Oita refinery over the coming weekend, a company source said on Friday.

The CDU at the Oita refinery has been shutdown since 16 August following a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) leakage from the unit, the source added.

Secondary units at the Oita refinery remained operational during the CDU shutdown, the source added, but run rate information was not available.

The Oita refinery is located on Japan’s southern island of Kyushu.
