NST, citing sources familiar with the matter, reported that Pengerang Refining and Petrochemical, a joint venture between Petronas and Saudi Aramco, is expected to restart a crude distillation unit at its oil refinery in Malaysia in July. The CDU will be processing low-sulphur crude in the absence of the desulphurisation unit

The refinery stopped trial runs in April for safety checks after a fire occurred at the atmospheric residue desulphurisation unit. Contractors are still assessing the extent of damage at the fire-hit ARDS unit and repairs could take between three months and two years

USD 27 billion Pengerang Integrated Complex, consists of a 300,000 barrels-per-day oil refinery and a petrochemical complex with a production capacity of 7.7 million tonnes per year in the southern Malaysian state of Johor.
