SINGAPORE -- ExxonMobil’s Singapore integrated manufacturing site will be shutting down several operating units for a planned maintenance beginning today.

The overall duration of this maintenance is expected to last about nine weeks. This is a scheduled maintenance. Shutting down the units will provide an opportunity for detailed inspection of equipment normally in continuous operation; routine maintenance; and installation of facility improvement projects. 

Such unit shutdowns are infrequent, but they are necessary to ensure continued safe and reliable operations. During the units’ shut down and start up, some flaring may occur but it will be kept to a minimum.

ExxonMobil would like to assure our neighbours and members of the public that we are committed to actions that protect the environment, as well as the safety and health of our employees, contractors and the general public.

We have communicated the planned maintenance to our customers and we expect to continue meeting their business needs during this period of time.
