Oman’s Sohar refinery is shutting down on Thursday for 46 days of maintenance, a statement from the state-run refinery said.
“The Sohar refinery will be shut down for scheduled maintenance for 46 days,” the statement said.
The refinery is expected to restart around April 15.
Reuters reported in December that the 116,000-barrel per day (bpd) refinery would be shut in March and for most of April.
Oman produces around 950,000 bpd of crude oil.
