Sinopec hopes to double refining capacity in Fujian
Reuters – Friday, August 22
BEIJING, Aug 21 – Sinopec Group, the parent of Sinopec Corp, hopes to double the capacity of its Fujian refinery to 480,000 barrels per day between 2010 and 2015, China’s official news agency Xinhua reported on Thursday. The $5 billion plant, a joint venture between Sinopec, Exxon Mobil Corp and Saudi Aramco, is undergoing an expansion that will raise its capacity from 80,000 bpd to 240,000 bpd by late this year.
Sinopec also plans to start a feasibility study as soon as possible to expand an ethylene cracker to 1 million tonnes per year from 800,000 tpy, Xinhua said, citing a memorandum signed on Tuesday by the company and the local government in Fujian province.
The report did not say when Sinopec would submit the plans to Beijing for approval.

Can somebody provide details on the coker at fujian? I understand from a previous post Fujian has an anode grade coker; but am unable to find any reference to this in any external source.

You are not going to be able to just Google into the info on almost any of the China coking units – which is why the O&GJ is only showing 8 coking units in country that has close to 80 sites! Your best approach would be to spend $8-10k for multi-client study by one petcoke groups like CRU/Jacobs PCQ or ect.
I would need to know more than just “Guest” label your wearing to consider the request, and you would need to have some information to “trade”. You are lucky in that this is one of the Government Refinery groups (Sinopec) so there is more individual information – but the news updates on projects almost never mention coking units unless reporting agency has clients in that field.
But Fujian does have anode coker – all existing cokers China would be anode or needle coke since only reason for them to have had coker would be to support existing Aluminum or Steel industries. It is my understanding that anode production is likely fuel now since China imports more than 30% of its crude now from middle east.
