Chinas Sinopec Beihai Petrochemical starts up new refinery

January 10/2012

(ICIS)--Sinopec Beihai Petrochemical has started up its new 5m tonne/year refinery at Beihai in Guangxi and will offer oil products from next month, a company source said on Friday.

The company also plans to start up all auxiliary units, primarily a 1.7m tonne/year fluid catalytic cracker, a 2.6m tonne/year gasoil hydrogenation unit, a 1.2m tonne/year delayed coker and a 200,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant at the same site before the Lunar New Year holiday (22-28 January).

However, initially the units will not run at high operating rates, the source said.
We will begin to supply oil products in January, the source added.
The refinery was previously scheduled to start on 18 December, but production was delayed until late December as a fluid catalytic unit was not ready for operation at the time.

Production at this refinery will help to push up Sinopecs crude throughput in 2012, industry sources said.
