LONDON (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell <RDSa.L> said the earliest restart expected for Europe’s largest oil refinery is the second half of August. Shell shut down most of the units at the 404,000 barrel per day (bpd) Pernis oil refinery in the Netherlands following a power outage caused by a fire on the evening of July 29. “We expect to restart our operations at the earliest in the second half of August,” a spokesman said in an email. “We regret the impact this may cause for our customers, and we are doing everything we can to minimize impact.”
