Nov. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Belneftekhim, the Belarus state-run oil company, delayed the commissioning of a diesel hydrotreater at its Mozyr refinery, RIA Novosti reported, citing a company official it didn’t identify.

The sulfur-removal unit, which will have a capacity of 3 million metric tons a year, was scheduled to start operations in August and is currently in the final stages of installation, RIA Novosti reported. Mozyr can process 323,000 barrels of crude a day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
