BP postpones planned maintenance at Washington, Ohio refineries -source

HOUSTON, March 20 (Reuters) - BP Plc has rescheduled planned maintenance at its Cherry Point, Washington, and joint-venture Toledo, Ohio, refineries until the fall, said a source familiar with the company’s plans.

The work was pushed back to prevent the spread of coronavirus among the large number of contractors who would assemble to do the work, the source said. (Reporting by Erwin Seba)
