LONDON (ICIS)--Kuwait Petroleum’s base oil unit in the Netherlands is in the process of restarting following a technical delay, a company source said on Monday.

The company had originally planned to restart the 235,000 tonne/year Rotterdam unit on 28 October after planned maintenance work, but this was delayed by unspecified technical issues.

The unit was in the process of restarting on Monday, with base oil production expected from Tuesday, said the source.

Kuwait Petroleum previously said that it was supplying all of its customers as agreed, despite being tight on certain base oil grades.

The unit went down on 28 September.
