Brazil's Petrobras to make scheduled stoppage at Regap refinery
(Reuters) - Brazilian state-run oil firm Petrobras will make a scheduled maintenance stoppage at its Gabriel Passos Refinery (Regap) in Minas Gerais state, three sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.
The unit, which has the capacity to process 150,000 barrels of oil per day, has two refining trains (units) and each of them is expected to stop for around a month, one of the sources said, adding the first stoppage will be next week and the other in October.
Regap processes fuels such as gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, among other products. Its output supplies a large part of Minas Gerais state and, occasionally, its neighbor Espirito Santo.
Maintenance shutdowns are carried out periodically, in compliance with regulatory standards.
Petrobras did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
