Petrotahlil - Brazil's state-controlled Petrobras is suspending deliveries from its 178,000 b/d Presidente Bernardes refinery (RPBC) at Cubtao, Sao Paulo state, until the end of April becasue of scheduled maintenance.

The coastal plant is Brazil's only refinery that can produce aviation gasoline, but the company said the work will not reduce market supply.

The suspension coincides with an expected period of rising domestic demand for diesel amid lower imports and the lifting of federal taxes on diesel for two months starting on 1 March.
