UPDATE 1-Imperial starts maintenance at Alberta refinery

CALGARY, Alberta, May 10 (Reuters) - Imperial Oil Ltd (IMO.TO) has taken some of the processing units at its Alberta refinery down for several weeks of planned maintenance, a spokesman said on Tuesday.

The company started work on units at the 187,000 barrel a day Strathcona refinery near Edmonton on May 6, Imperial’s Jon Harding said.

He declined to specify which equipment was down for work or what the production impact will be during the duration.

“We’ve communicated our supply capabilities to our customers. There are plans in place to meet their normal demand needs,” Harding said.

Meanwhile, maintenance continues at Imperial’s 112,000 bpd Nanticoke, Ontario, refinery, he said. The work there started March 28. (Reporting by Jeffrey Jones; editing by Rob Wilson)
