Shuaiba refinery reopens after outage
Kuwait City, August 5, 2008
Kuwait’s 200,000 barrels per day Shuabai oil refinery resumed operations after a power outage on Tuesday, but will need at least 48 hours to return to full capacity, oil officials said.
’There was a limited internal defect in the main electricity feeder in the control room but it was fixed ... We temporarily shut down the refinery,’ an official at the Shuaiba refinery said.
Another official said the refinery was gradually resuming work but would need at least two days to return to full capacity. - Reuters
