ExxonMobil has shut its 140,000 b/d refinery in Fos-sur-Mer, southern France, for a planned turnaround, a company spokesperson told OPIS Tuesday.

"[The] Fos-sur-Mer refinery will be shut down for a planned turnaround starting January 20," the spokesperson said, declining to reveal the expected end date of the work citing company policy.

However, market sources suggested the maintenance work is expected to last for one month.

The turnaround will focus on refinery maintenance, upgrades and projects dedicated to energy efficiency, ExxonMobil said, adding intermittent flaring and noise may occur.

The refinery currently employs a workforce of around 300, with the capacity to produce 7 million metric tons/year of refined petroleum products, data from the company showed.
