MOL's Slovak Refinery Starting Planned Turnaround In April

Reuters

PRAGUE, April 6 (Reuters) - Slovak oil refiner Slovnaft, part of the Hungarian oil and gas group MOL, will shut down some production starting over the Easter holiday in April for a general turnaround lasting until June, it said.

The company will invest 57 million euros into the turnaround during which it will undertake inspections, maintenance and upgrades, it said in a statement on its website on Wednesday.

The shutdown will not impact its Bratislava refinery customers, Slovnaft said, adding stocks and production within the MOL group will cover needs.

A total of 16 productions will be gradually shut down and a restart of full production is expected in mid-June.
