MRPL partially shutters units at Mangalore refining complex

Mangalore Refinery & Petrochemicals Ltd. (MRPL), a subsidiary of Oil & Natural Gas Corp. Ltd., has implemented a partial shutdown of process units as part of a force majeure at its 300,000-b/d integrated complex in Mangalore, India.

The partial shutdown of units comes amid an acute shortage of fresh water in the Nethravathi River in absence of summer showers, the operator said in a May 8 filing to National Stock Exchange of India Ltd.

MRPL did not disclose the specific units impacted by the shutdown, nor did it reveal the precise impacts the shuttered units are having on production at the site.

A timeframe for when the units might resume full operation was not disclosed.
