BPCL to Shut Some Units at Three Refineries Starting in November

Bharat Petroleum Corp., India’s second-biggest state refiner, will partially shut some secondary units at its three refineries for maintenance beginning November.

The work at the 9.5 million metric-ton-a-year Kochi refinery in southern India will start in mid-November, followed by the 12 million-ton Mumbai refinery in western India in December and the 3 million-ton Numaligarh refinery in north-eastern India in January. “Each of the maintenance shutdowns will be for 25-30 days,” B.K. Datta, BPCL’s refineries director, said today in an interview in Delhi.

The maintenance shutdowns will cut production of fuels such as gasoline and diesel, requiring the company to increase purchases from domestic or overseas refineries.

BPCL is seeking a cargo of gasoline for delivery in October to Kochi, a company official said on Sept. 25.
