Pertamina said its 125,000 b/d Balongan refinery has returned to normal operations, 10 days after it was closed down because of a fire at the plant's storage facilities. The blaze broke out on Mar. 29 and was extinguished in four days (IOD Mar.29'21). It ravaged four tanks with a combined capacity of about 63,000 bbl or about 7% of Balongan's 8.5 million bbl storage capacity. The restart began on Mar. 31 and began with the crude distillation unit followed by the residual catalytic cracker unit. Processing units were not damaged by the fire but six people were treated for serious burns. Balongan represents about 12% of Indonesia's refining capacity. It supplies fuel to Jakarta and parts of West Java.
