As reported by Reuters, Japan’s biggest refiner, Eneos Corp., permanently shut the 115 000 bpd crude distillation unit (CDU) at its Osaka refinery on 30 September, a company spokeswoman said on Friday.

The refiner, which was formerly known as JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corp and is now under Eneos Holdings Inc, is shifting its joint venture with PetroChina Co to Eneos’ Chiba refinery after shutting the venture’s Osaka refinery.

Eneos also shut the 127 500 bpd CDU at its Wakayama refinery on 27 September for scheduled maintenance, with a plan to restart in early December, the spokeswoman said.

The company also shut the 120 000 bpd No.1 CDU at its Negishi refinery on 25 September, with an aim to resume operations in early November.
