Japan's Power Plants Recover from Quake, but Refiners See Setbacks


SUGAR LAND--March 22, 2022--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--As Japan continues to recover from the 7.4-magnitude earthquake that rocked its eastern areas last week, a clearer picture is emerging of its effects on energy and industrial markets. Japan issued its first-ever power supply warning Tuesday, following the forced shutdown of several plants and technical troubles at Tokyo Electric Power Company, a leading utility in the area. At least two major refineries also are facing longer-than-expected outages. Industrial Info's Global Market Intelligence (GMI) Outage Database is keeping tabs on these developments.

Within this article: Details on some of the power-generation, chemical processing and refining facilities affected by last week's earthquake in eastern Japan, including restarts and prolonged shutdowns from companies such as Japan Petroleum Exploration Company Limited, Nippon Paper Industries Company Limited, Tohoku Electric Power Company Incorporated, Tokyo Electric Power Company Incorporated, Sumitomo Chemical Company Limited, Maruzen Petrochemical Company Limited, Denka Company Limited and ENEOS Corporation.
