Total's Zeeland refinery expands diesel unit

LONDON (Reuters) - The 180,000 barrels per day Zeeland refinery in the Netherlands said in a statement it is expanding its diesel-producing hydrocracker unit with a third reactor.

The new unit arrived on July 18 and will be connected to the existing plant in 2020, the refinery said in a statement on its website.

The plant is owned by Total (TOTF.PA) and Russia’s Lukoil (LKOH.MM). The firms invested 40 million euros (£36.64 million) in the new unit, the statement said.

The addition is part of a global drive to increase diesel production ahead of a major change in marine fuel standards next year that requires vessel to use lower-sulphur fuels.
