Here is update on $5B, 260MBD CNPC Tianjin Petchem/Refinery & Coker Expansion project.
The Sino-Russian relationships have hit some rough patches with disputes over the Crude P/L and price crude recently (see Refinery News post 4/22) but this projects the expansion to go ahead in 2011 with completion in 2015.
CNPC has small 300 kmtpy anode coker that will be shutdown and replaced by new/larger coker for expansion. But none these details are mentioned in this and previous news updates – which is typical for the China Refinery/Petchem expansions.
Note – Sinopec also has coking refineries nearby at both Dagang (Tianjin Dagang) & Tianjin.
