Here is update on CNOOC new Grassroots Huizhou Refinery & Coker fist stage that completed 2008 but not officially online until Mar 2009 due economics/product demand. But CNOOC has already started the 2nd Stage Refinery/Coker expansion despite market conditions & expects complete by 2011.
Huizhou is just one of 24 Independent coking refineries/petrochem complex’s in the China Shandong province (not counting the 6 Sinopec & PetroChina coking refineries there) and one of the many 17-20 new refinery additions/expansions (which include 3 recent coking expansions by Sinopec & Petrochina at previous coking refineries) adding a coking unit in the 2006-2012 time frame according to my tables. Most like Huizhou seem to be going forward at this time.
No updates on CNOOC either newly acquired Haihau Refinery expansion (with coker) or newly acquired Zhong Jie Refinery 200 MBD expansion will also include a coker.
