Polish-owned Orlen Lietuva, the only crude oil refiner in the Baltics, launches a 35-day maintenance turnaround, which will cost some 100 million litas (EUR 29 m), on Monday, 30 April.

The turnaround, which will last until 3 June, will be the biggest in last six years since the acquisition of the refinery by Poland’s PKN Orlen.

PKN Orlen has invested 1.9 billion litas in the Lithuanian refinery since its acquisition back in 2006. With the turnaround finalized, the total amount of investment will exceed 2 billion litas.

Orlen Lietuva CEO Ireneusz Fafara earlier said that regular investments in the upgrade of the facility were necessary so as to ensure its long-term profitability.

The refinery will need approximately 4,300 workers for the turnaround and Orlen Lietuva has already concluded contracts with contractors, including 78 companies from Lithuania, 22 companies from Poland, 7 companies from Estonia as well as with companies from Germany and the Netherlands. All processes will be stopped and fuel will be supplied from available stocks.

Orlen Lietuva was last closed for a turnaround in 2007, but the scale of works was less considerable than this time.
