Engen Refinery to Undergo Planned Routine Maintenance

Engen Oil, September 19, 2016

Engen Petroleum, a leading distributor and marketer of fuels, lubricants and oil-based products, is set to undergo planned maintenance at the company's 135,000 bpd refinery in Durban, South Africa.  Starting on 19 September 2016, this scheduled activity forms part of the refinery’s ongoing maintenance programme and will run for 21 days.  

Jehan Zaib, General Manager of the Engen Refinery, explains that routine planned maintenance is essential for the safe and reliable operation of the facility.  “The planned outage will primarily focus on essential plant maintenance and inspection activities as well as process regeneration activities,” says Zaib. 

Customers remain Engen’s first priority and the secure supply of fuels to Engen service stations is expected. 

To ensure that we complete this planned maintenance outage on time, there will be increased traffic as suppliers and contractors service the refinery. We will however do our utmost to keep any disruption to a minimum and have detailed planning schedules to mitigate any potential access and capacity issues,” says Zaib. 

The safety of our employees and the neighboring community is of the highest priority to Engen and we want to thank our neighbours in advance for their understanding during this period,” he adds.  

The Engen Refinery is South Africa’s second largest oil refinery.
