Sinopec Beihai Petrochemical starts production Dec 29, 2011
Sinopec Beihai Petrochemical in Guangxi has started production at its 5m tonne/year refinery, a company source said on 29 December. The company is likely to start up all the units at this refinery before the holiday for the Spring Festival (in late January), but it will not run these units at high rates yet, the source said.
The company has built a 5m tonne/year crude distillate unit, a 1.7m tonne/year fluid catalytic cracker, a 2.6m tonne/year gasoil hydrogenation unit, a 1.2m tonne/year delayed coker and some other secondary units.
Here is update on Sinopec’s Beihai Refinery & Petchem coker startup, it looks like Beihai Petchem started up its new 100MBD Crude unit and 24MBD coker (also mentions new 34MBD FCC & 50MBD Gasoil HDS unit) in Dec 2011.
