OMV's Schwechat Refinery Startup Delayed Due to Incident

   By Giulia Petroni 

OMV AG said Friday that startup of the Schwechat refinery in Austria will be partially delayed due to a mechanical incident.

The Austrian oil-and-gas major said the main distillation unit for crude oil was damaged in the incident. The refinery has been undergoing maintenance turnaround since April 19.

"A review of the extent of the damage and the duration of the shutdown is still underway," OMV said. "We will work closely with our customers and suppliers to mitigate any impact on product availability," it said.

Two people were slightly injured in the incident, according to the company.
