PetroChina launches expanded Huabei refinery

June 13/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- PetroChina launched its Huabei refinerys expanded 10 million tons crude processing capacity after it passed preliminary testing, reported Reuters with reference to the state-run Economic Information Daily.

At present, the new 2.9 million tonnes per year residue hydrocracking unit and the 1 million tonnes per year aviation fuel hydrotreating unit are in the preparatory stage for test operations. The annual production capacity of aviation fuel will reach 1.7 million tonnes after these units are put into operation.

The Huabei project is the only refining and chemical enterprise which will directly supply to the new and under-construction Beijing Daxing International Airport, according to the report.

The Huabei refinery, one of the largest under PetroChina, expanded its crude processing capacity to 10 million tonnes (200,000 bpd) from 5 million tonnes with a total investment of more than 31 billion yuan (USD4.48 billion).

The refinery will help in meeting increasing demand for fuel from the Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei region.

As MRC informed before, in April 2019, LyondellBasell (Rotterdam, the Netherlands) announced that PetroChina will use the LyondellBasell Hostalen Advanced Cascade Process (Hostalen ACP) technology to produce 1,100,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) capacity.

PetroChina has designated three refineries in northeast China - Dalian, Liaoyang and Jilin - as the main receiving points for the increased Russian supply. Liaoyang will begin taking more crude once a major upgrade is completed at the end of this year. The new volumes will flow as a result of Russia and China expanding the East Siberian Pacific Ocean pipeline that starts at Rosnefts oilfields in East Siberia and enters China at border town of Mohe.
