Toa Oil Co., a unit of Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K., is starting a crude distillation unit at its Toa Keihin refinery near Tokyo today after scheduled maintenance.
The refiner is resuming the No. 3 CDU at its 185,000 barrel a day facility, Satoshi Yoshida, a Showa Shell spokesman, said by phone today. The unit, which can process as much as 65,000 barrels of crude a day, was closed for maintenance April 2.
