Idemitsu to Resume Crude Unit at Chiba Refinery in Two Weeks

July 25 (Bloomberg) -- Idemitsu Kosan Co. plans to resume the No. 2 crude distillation unit at its Chiba refinery near Tokyo in about two weeks, said a company official who asked not to be identified because of internal policy.

The 220,000 barrel-a-day CDU was shut on July 19 after a fire started near the naphtha circulation lines at the facility. The company kept some of its secondary units running after the CDU was halted, the official said, without specifying the equipment.
