South Africa’s Enref refinery due maintenance

Engen Petroleum Ltd. will shut down its 125,000-b/d Enref refinery in Durban, South Africa, for planned maintenance beginning on July 9, the company said.

The scheduled outage comes as part of the refinery’s ongoing maintenance program designed to ensure safe, reliable operations at the plant, as well as to secure a steady and stable supply of petroleum products for the country, Engen Petroleum said.

The company, which warned of potential supply disruptions during the shutdown period, did not disclose a timeframe for when planned maintenance activities would conclude.

Details regarding the specific nature of the scheduled maintenance work remained unavailable.

The Enref refinery, South Africa’s second largest, produces automotive, industrial, aviation, and marine fuels, as well as bitumen, lubricants, and a range of chemicals and solvents.
