Japan's Eneos restarts CDU at Kashima refinery

Eneos Corp, Japan's biggest refiner, restarted the 168,000-bpd No.1 crude distillation unit (CDU) at its Kashima refinery, east of Tokyo, after it was shut on May 11 due to system trouble, a company spokeswoman said.

The refiner, which is a unit of Eneos Holdings Inc, plans to restart the 105,000-bpd No.3 CDU at its Mizushima-B refinery, western Japan, in early June, she said. The CDU was shut on Feb. 25 for turnaround.

It plans to shut down the 145,000 CDU at its Sendai refinery in northern Japan for planned maintenance in early June, the spokeswoman said

The company's 141,000-bpd Sakai refinery in western Japan is expected to restart in late June after maintenance, she added.

Eneos plans to restart the 136,000 bpd CDU at its Oita refinery in southwestern Japan in August, she said. The Oita CDU, which was shut on May 12 last year for scheduled maintenance, has been shut due to a fire later that month.
