Major Turnaround Coming for BP's Kwinana Refinery in Australia

The West Australian, February 9, 2017

BP's 138,000 bpd Kwinana Refinery in western Australia will undergo a major maintenance turnaround next week; the largest in its 60-year history. The overhaul is expected to last six weeks and will require approximately 1800 contractors to complete. The main focus of the work will be maintenance to the residue cracking unit, which converts heavy oil into lighter hydrocarbons such as diesel, petrol and fuel gas.
