HOUSTON, Apr. 25 -- Suncor Energy Products Inc., Calgary, said it will begin planned maintenance Apr. 25 at its 70,000 b/cd refinery in Sarnia, Ont.

The work, which will start on the refinery's alkylation and catalytic cracker units, is expected to be complete in June.

The refinery's hydrocracker unit also is scheduled to be shut down for about 8 weeks, beginning in August, to complete modifications designed to enable the refinery to process sour crude from the company's oil sands operation.

Throughout the shutdown periods, certain sections of the refinery will continue production. Suncor said it has made supply preparations and expects to meet all customer supply agreements.
