 March 22 (Reuters) - The table below shows the latest
operational status of Japan's refineries after a strong
earthquake on March 11, according to a Reuters survey.	
 Japan, the world's third-biggest oil consumer, has 28
refineries with total refining capacity of 4.52 million bpd.	
 Six refineries operated by four firms with total capacity of
1.40 million barrels per day, or 31 percent of Japan's total,
had halted operations after the quake, the survey shows. 	
 So far, three companies have restarted their affected
refineries. JX Nippon Oil & Energy restarted its 270,000 barrels
per day (bpd) Negishi refinery on Mar. 21. TonenGeneral Sekiyu
restarted its 335,000 bpd Kawsaki refinery on Mar. 17, while
Kyokuto Petroleum Industries (KPI) restarted its 175,000 bpd
Chiba refinery on Mar. 16. 
  	
 JX Nippon Oil & Energy and Cosmo Oil have raised crude
refining capacity at their refineries in western Japan in an
attempt to ease supply shortages in the east of the country.
	
 Idemitsu, Fuji Oil and Showa Shell have increased the run
rates at their refineries to full production as well.
	
 In the table below, capacity is given in thousands of
barrels per day; "U" refers to an unplanned shutdown.
