Semi-public Brazilian multinational oil corporation Petrobras says bunkering operations at all ports are operating as per normal conditions.
“Please note that despite the recent accident in one of Petrobras refineries in Brazil, bunker delivery operates as normal,” it said in a Tuesday note to traders.
“For this reason, Petrobras ensure that the replenishment in all ports will not be affected due to this occurrence.”
The company’s biggest refinery at Replan, which accounts for 20% of its refining capacity, reportedly caught a ‘serious’ fire on Monday, promoting a halt in oil production operations at the entire facility.
“The fire struck a section of the catalytic cracking units and one of the atmospheric distillation units that are part of the petroleum refining process, but the extent of the damage will still undergo a detailed assessment,” it said in a press release.
“The production was preventatively paralyzed and the company is evaluating the deadline for the return of the other units not affected by the fire.”
It did not announce when operations at the Replan refinery will resume, but says it has “stock and production from other refineries to guarantee the supply of fuel to its customers.”
