REGINA (Bloomberg) -- Federated Co-Operatives Ltd.’s Regina refinery plans to shut down some units for a 49-day maintenance turnaround starting in the last week of March, a company executive said.

Operations will be reduced to 60,000 to 70,000 bpd during the work from the plant’s full capacity of 130,000 bpd, Gil Le Dressay, VP of refinery operations, said in an interview at an official opening event for the plant’s newest expansion.

The Regina refinery usually schedules an annual turnaround in the spring in which it shuts down about one-third of the site’s operations and then restarts for full production for the agricultural planting season, Le Dressay said.

The company completed a $2.62 billion expansion of the refinery in October of last year that increased its capacity from 100,000 bbls. Final unit revamps for the expansion were completed this August.

The plant makes gasoline, diesel and lubricants from a variety of heavy and light crude feedstocks, with the latest expansion tailored toward light, sweet synthetic crude produced from Alberta’s oil sands.
