Taiwan February Oil Imports Fall After Refiner Halts Plant

Taiwan, which imports more than 99 percent of its crude oil needs, purchased less of the fuel in February after a refiner halted a unit for inspections.

Shipments declined 8.1 percent from a year earlier to 23.99 million barrels last month, the Ministry of Finance said in Taipei today. The island’s February oil bill climbed 11 percent to $2.77 billion, the ministry said in a statement.

Formosa Petrochemical Corp., the smaller of Taiwan’s two refiners, said on March 3 that oil processing declined in February because of a planned stoppage at a distillation unit. State-run CPC Corp. is the company’s bigger competitor.
