New Zealand Refining Company Limited (NZX:NZR) has changed the operational ways in March due to an unprecedented reduction in fuel demand as a consequence of global COVID-19 travel and transport restrictions.
The processing facilities are operating on a rotating basis to reduce production significantly in line with the fewer demands.
Few highlights are:
- Refinery throughput for March/April was 4.7 million barrels (33 per cent lower than January/February)
- Refinery to Auckland Pipeline (RAP) throughput for March/April was 2.0 million barrels (44 per cent lower than January/February)
