Nansei Sekiyu Halts Oil-Product Shipments as Typhoon Approaches

June 18, 2012

Nansei Sekiyu K.K., Petroleo Brasileiro SA (PETR4)’s Japanese unit, halted berthing operations at its Nishihara refinery on Okinawa island yesterday as typhoon Guchol approached, a company official said.

The refiner may stop oil-product shipments by trucks from the 100,000 barrel-a-day facility if weather conditions become worse, said the official who asked not to be identified because of company policy.
