ELPE resets date for refinery maintenance work

ELPE, or Hellenic Petroleum, has reset its date for maintenance work at the company’s refinery in Aspropyrgos, west of Athens, for the first half of 2015.

Speaking earlier today, a company official said the maintenance work would affect production levels at the plant, which refines 145,000 barrels of oil per day.

Last May, ELPE had announced that it was postponing the temporary closure of its Aspropyrgos plant for maintenance work, originally scheduled for this year’s third quarter.
