Update on Sinopec Petchem manintance schedule which has been shifted to Feb-Mar 2011 (some time shift was avoid issues with Asian 2010 Games). Some maintenance might be tied to 300MBD expansion for JV with Kuwait – now China’s 7th largest crude supplier. Sinopec Guangzhou refines only foreign crude most from Mid East/Kuwait as article mentions & processed 1 million mt of October 2010 shipment.
Sinopec Guangzhou upgraded its coker in 2005 from 1 million tpy to 1.2 million tpy (coker charge) and joined several other refineries that ceased making +2.0 mm mtpy LS Petcoke and beging producing HS Fuel coke with Guangzhou ~300 kmtpy of 5.0% Sulfur fuel coke.
It is my understanding that the Sinopec Guangzhou Petrochemical JV addition will also expand coker to produce total of 800 kmtpy of fuel coke and is on the Zhenhai Engineering’s Project list (who performed the coker expansion 2005 & ZRCC also worked on Wuhan coker addition that started up this year).
