Cracker in operation at Mongstad

February 27, 2001, 14:30 CET

The cracking facilities at Statoil’s refinery at Mongstad near Bergen are producing as normal after a three-week stoppage.

The cracker was started up and began to take in feedstock in the early hours of Saturday 24 February.

Whilst the facilities were being repaired the Mongstad refinery has operated at reduced through-put.
