The unit’s operational rates were still high and oil product exports will not be affected, an official said.
State-run Kuwait National Petroleum Co (KNPC) has controlled a fire at a delayed coker unit at its Mina Abdulla refinery, state news agency KUNA reported.
“…A very limited fire occurred at one of the supply lines of the unit,” KNPC spokesman Khaled al-Asousi told KUNA on Tuesday, when the fire happened.
He said the unit’s operational rates were still high. Oil product exports are not expected to be affected, a source close to the matter said.
According to KNPC’s website, the coker unit has two identical trains with a total capacity of 76,000 barrels per day
