Natref Refinery To Reach Full Output This Weekend After Disruption


CAPE TOWN, Aug 4 (Reuters) - South Africa's 108,000 barrel-a-day Natref refinery, operated by Sasol and Total will reach full output this weekend after an explosion and power cuts the last three months, a spokesman said on Friday.

"Natref is expected to be fully online and at planned production this weekend," said Alex Anderson, spokesman at Sasol.

Besides an explosion in May at the refinery that injured 11 people, a power failure towards the end of June also completely shut down production at South Africa's only inland refinery.
