Chennai Petroleum Corp plans to shut two of the three crude units at its 210,000 barrels per day (bpd) Manali plant in southern Tamil Nadu state by September for maintenance, two sources said on Tuesday.


Chennai Petro, a unit of India's biggest refiner, Indian Oil Corp, planned to shut a 56,000-bpd crude unit for 21 days in May-June and a 74,000-bpd crude unit for 23 days in Aug.-Sept. for maintenance, sources with knowledge of the plan said.


They said the plans were tentative and final shutdown dates would depend on the country's demand and supply scenario.


Chennai Petroleum Managing Director K.Balachandran declined to comment on the shutdown plan.


The sources also said Chennai Petroleum had no plans to shut any of its secondary units for maintenance in the next fiscal year, which begins in April.

"Secondary units will continue to function, depending on the availability of feedstock," said one source.
