Syncrude to restart coker after maintenance shutdown

CALGARY, Alberta, May 15 (Reuters) - Syncrude Canada Ltd has nearly wrapped up a 45-day scheduled maintenance shutdown, with the 100,000 barrel per day unit scheduled to be restarted on Friday, a spokeswoman for the joint-venture’s biggest shareholder said on Thursday.

The coker, a key unit in the production of synthetic crude oil refined from tar-like bitumen, had been shut since early last month. (Reporting by Scott Haggett; editing by Renato Andrade)
