Italy’s Saras Starts Units at Sarroch Oil Refinery After Works

May 13 (Bloomberg) -- Italy’s Saras SpA started processing units at its Sarroch refinery in Sardinia following maintenance that began at the beginning of April.

The turnaround, which began on April 4 was “successfully completed” and full production is expected on May 16, Dario Scaffardi, general manager at Saras, said on a conference call today, according to a transcript.

The company said earlier today in a statement two mild hydrocracking units MHC1 and MHC2, visbreaking unit VSB, crude distillation unit T1 and vacuum unit V1 would undergo maintenance in the second quarter.

The refinery can process 300,000 barrels of crude a day, according to the company’s website. That represents about 15 percent of Italy’s refining capacity.

Hydrocrackers produce distillates such as diesel and jet fuel. Visbreakers raise the amount of diesel and gasoil that can be processed from heavy oil-products.
