Employees of Ukrtatnafta's 80,000b/d Kremenchug refinery experienced a lot of stress last Saturday, 13 November 2021, due to a fire on a furnace for heating feedstock at the primary distillation unit AT-2 -3/1.

The ignition occurred due to the destruction of the connecting tube, the quick reaction of operators and firefighters allowed to minimize losses, according to sources in Dnipro city close to the refinery.

However, the refinery operators had to switch to maintenance mode with the return to the refinery full-fledged operation within the next week.
