FACTBOX-Oil refineries curb output as coronavirus cuts fuel use

    May 15 (Reuters) - Oil refineries have curbed output since
February as travel restrictions destroy fuel demand.
    Most refiners are operating, but many have reduced the
number of barrels of oil they process as gasoline and diesel use
contracts.
    Fuel demand has dropped by about 30% worldwide as the
coronavirus chokes economic activity and forces billions of
people to stay home to curb its spread, creating a global supply
glut.
    Below is a list of refineries that have reduced output
specifically in response to lower demand (excluding scheduled
maintenance):
