Shell to Partly Shut Singapore Refinery for Work, Reuters Says

June 06, 2012

Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) will partially shut its 500,000 barrel-a-day Pulau Bukom refinery in Singapore for a month starting in early July for maintenance, Reuters reported, citing five unidentified traders.

The company will idle a 110,000 barrel-a-day crude distillation unit, it said, citing two of the traders. Work will also be done on a 35,000 barrel-a-day hydrocracker, a reformer unit and another secondary unit, Reuters said, citing one person.

Shell does not discuss maintenance schedules, the company said in an e-mailed statement seeking comment.
