Russia's Tuapse refinery catches fire, says output plans unaffected

MOSCOW (Reuters) -- Russia's Tuapse oil refinery has yet to restart its sole primary processing CDU-12 unit after a pump was damaged by a fire on Wednesday, the energy ministry said.

Rosneft, who owns the refinery, said it had caught fire on Wednesday and that the incident would not affect production plans.

It said no one was injured and the fire was quickly put out at the plant.

Tuapse refinery is the only Russian refinery located on the Black Sea coast, and it is also one of the oldest -- it was put into operation in 1929.
