The demand for POL products during winter season from Dec 2009 to Mar 2010, will remain low as indicated by the time scale analysis of previous 10 years. So, the major overhauling activity can be done by shutting down production during this season.
Also the slowdown of economic activity due to Global Recession indicates that the demand during Dec 2009 to Mar 2010 will remain considerably low.
Seizing this opportunity will enable the refinery to continue safe, uninterrupted and efficient operations in the future.
