Russia's offline primary oil refining capacity revised up for April

(Reuters) - Russia's offline primary oil refining capacity has been revised upwards for April by 107,000 metric tons from previous expectations to 4.430 million tons, Reuters calculations based on data from industry sources showed on Wednesday.

The offline capacity has been revised up due to maintenance extensions for some production equipment, including for crude distillation units at Rosneft-owned Komsomolsky refinery in Russia's far east, Ufaneftekhim in the Urals and Krasnodar refinery in south.

Russian refineries have suffered from Ukrainian drones attacks and technical outages.

According to current plans, idled primary oil refining capacity is set to decline by 39% in May from April to 2.791 million tons, but it is likely to be revised up if some units, placed under long-term maintenance, continue to stay idle.
