Bharat Petroleum Corp plans to temporary shut its 156,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) Bina refinery in central India for about a month in June for maintenance, two sources familiar with the plan said.

The state-run refiner also plans to shut half of its 240,000 bpd Mumbai refinery in western India for three to four weeks in September-October for maintenance, the sources further said.

As per the Reuters report, BPCL's spokesperson did not respond to request for comments. Further, the details of the shutdown plan are 'tentative', and dates will be finalized later.

'As of now plan is to shut Bina refinery from June 1, once Numaligarh (refinery) is back from its shutdown,' one of the sources informed.

Indian refiners have to shut units at refineries once every four years for maintenance and inspection, as per the rules.

Numaligarh Refinery Ltd plans to shut its 60,000-bpd plant in the northeast for about 40 days up to the end of April for maintenance, a company spokesperson told Reuters.
