Shell restarting units at its Pernis oil refinery after power outage

LONDON, March 30 (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell is restarting units at its Pernis oil refinery in the Netherlands following a power outage on Saturday, a spokesman for the oil major said on Monday.

"The Pernis site is currently in the process of restarting the impacted units and restoring its electrical facilities," he said.

A power outage on Saturday evening caused multiple unit shutdowns at the 404,000 barrel per day refinery, Europe's largest. (Reporting by Ron Bousso and Ahmad Ghaddar; Editing by Edmund Blair)
