Production at Indonesia's Trans Pacific Petrochemicals Indotama (TPPI) refinery will restart at the start of October, once administrative matters are resolved, Reuters reported.

Initial output from the plant is expected to be around 20,000 barrels per day (bpd) of either petrochemicals or fuel, ramping up to 50,000-55,000 bpd, Widanda Pusponegoro, spokeswoman for the state energy company, Pertamina, told Reuters. Pertamina runs the refinery.


"Our focus for now is to finalise the financial and all the legal requirements," she said. "In terms of operations we don't have any obstacles," the spokeswoman said, declining to give more informaiton on when the production will increase.

The TPPI refinery was under a graft investigation this year in relation to the sale of condensates.
