HOUSTON, Aug. 24 -- Neste Oil Corp., Keilaranta, Finland, will improve energy efficiency and increase sulfur recovery capacity during a 5-week shutdown of its 51,800 b/d Naantali, Finland, refinery.
The shutdown—the largest in Naantali's history—will begin Aug. 31, and maintenance and repair work will commence around Sept. 7. Among projects intended to secure the refinery's reliability, performance, and safety over the next 6 years, Neste Oil will inspect all statutory pressure vessels and commission a new flare system.
The special-product refinery is scheduled to be back in normal operation in mid-October.
