Preem plans September maintenance at oil refinery in Sweden

(Reuters) - Swedish refiner Preem is planning a partial closure of its 228,000 bpd Lysekil oil refinery in Sweden for maintenance in September for around one month, a company spokesperson said.

The spokesperson declined to comment on which units will be affected.

Preem is also planning maintenance at its 120,000 bpd Gothenburg oil refinery in Sweden in the autumn of 2023, the spokesperson confirmed, without specifying further detail.

A full turnaround, or closure for maintenance, was planned at the Gothenburg refinery in 2021, but this was changed to a partial turnaround in the autumn of that year and an additional one next year for reasons related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the spokesperson said.
