Taiwan CPC Shut No. 1 Crude Unit at Taoyuan Refinery

CPC Corp., Taiwan’s state-owned oil company, said it shut the No. 1 crude distillation unit at its Taoyuan refinery on Nov. 26 for maintenance.

The stoppage will last about 45 days, Vice President Paul Chen said in a telephone interview today. The company had earlier halted its No. 11 crude distillation unit at the Talin refinery on Nov. 20 for about the same length of time, he said. Each of the units can process 100,000 barrels of oil a day.

CPC’s three refineries -- Kaohsiung and Talin in Kaohsiung City, and Taoyuan in northern Taiwan -- have a combined capacity of 720,000 barrels a day. Crude distillation units separate the fuel into oil products and form the main part of a refinery.
