Russia’s Rosneft Conducts Refinery Review Following Complaints

OAO Rosneft, Russia’s largest oil producer, conducted a review of its Komsomolsk refinery after local residents complained of a foul odor.

The refinery is operating as usual and the government’s industrial watchdog hasn’t detected heightened levels of air pollutants, the company said today in a statement on its website.

The Komsomolsk refinery is in Russia’s Far East and can process 160,000 barrels of crude a day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
