Here is news update on Kuwait as China’s 7th largest crude supplier & a greatly expanded use of imported heavy oil into China’s refineries like Sinopec Guangzhou Petrochemical. The previous domestic crude use and anode petcoke production continues to shift towards more imported crude use and fuel coke production.
The article also mentions JV Sinopec Guangzhou refinery/petrochemical expansion project. Sinopec Guangzhou recently upgraded its coker in 2005 from 1 million tpy to 1.2 million tpy (coker charge) and currently produces ~275 kmtpy of a ~3.5% Sulfur fuel coke.
It is my understanding that the Sinopec Guangzhou Petrochemical JV addition will add 300MBD mentioned and also expand coker to produce 800 kmtpy of fuel coke (or 800 kmtpy of coker charge – unclear at this point) and is on the Zhenhai Engineering’s Project list (who performed the coker expansion 2005 and ZRCC also worked on Wuhan coker that started up 2008/this year). Note – unlike recent Sinopec Wuhan or Fujian cokers, the Guangzhou Petrochemical coker was not one of 17 – 21 new cokers on China’s forecast coker addition list.
