TOKYO (ICIS)--Japan’s largest refiner JX Nippon Oil and Energy Corp has restarted the sole crude distillation unit (CDU) at its 136,000 bbl/day Oita refinery as scheduled on 1 September, a company spokesman said on Monday.

The spokesman declined to state the current operating rate, however.

JX had shut the CDU on 16 August due to a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) leakage from the unit.

The Oita refinery is located on the island of Kyushu in southwestern Japan.
