SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japanese refiner Cosmo Oil plans to have a full shutdown of its 110,000 bbl/day Sakai refinery from end-August to early October this year for scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Friday.
Facilities at the Sakai refinery include a single 110,000 bbl/day crude distillation unit (CDU), a 34,000 bbl/day vacuum distillation unit (VDU), a 24,000 bbl/day fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) and a 8,000 bbl/day naphtha reformer.
The previous full shutdown of the Sakai refinery for scheduled maintenance was from 22 August to 17 October 2011.
The Sakai refinery is the smallest of Cosmo Oil’s four refineries.
The company has a 220,000 bbl/day refinery in Chiba and a 175,000 bbl/day Yokkaichi refinery. Its 140,000 bbl/day Sakaide refinery will shut down permanently from July 2013.
