Two-month major maintenance to start at Europe's biggest oil refinery

LONDON (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell will begin “major maintenance work” on a number of units at its Pernis oil refinery in Rotterdam beginning on 25 January, the major said.

The maintenance is expected to last two months and at its peak will require 3,000 extra workers at the site, Shell said.

Shell did not specify the units involved in the turnaround.

The refinery is Europe’s largest and has the capacity to process 404,000 barrels per day of crude.
