(Reuters) PetroChina has shut down a 200,000 barrel-per-day crude distillation unit at its Dalian refinery after a fire on Saturday, an industry source and state media said. The accident happened just two weeks after the CDU was restarted after it was shut for around 40 days for maintenance. The fire, caused by a leak at a heat exchanger in the CDU, started on Saturday afternoon and was put out at around 8 pm, China state television said. No casualties were reported. It is not clear when the CDU would resume operation.
