Russia's Ryazan oil refinery restores crude processing to 60% of pre-attack level

(Reuters) - Russia's Ryazan oil plant resumed operations at primary oil refining unit CDU-4 this week, increasing its total crude intake to 60% of normal capacity or 169,000 bpd, three sources told Reuters on Wednesday.

The refinery shut down the CDU-4 and main CDU-6 primary oil refining units on March 13 after a fire caused by a drone attack.

It plans to resume operations at the CDU-6 unit at a capacity of some 170,000 bpd by the end of March, fully restoring the plant's production shortly after, the sources added.

Ryazan's owner Rosneft did not reply to a request for comment.

After the fire the plant reduced runs by 64% compared to the beginning of the month to 95,000 bpd.

Ryazan, with installed capacity of around 350,000 barrels per day, refines about 12.7 million metric tons of Russian crude a year (around 317,000 barrels per day), or 5.8% of the country's total refined crude, according to industry sources.
