Sinopec Zhenhai Refining plans brief maintenance at No. 3 PP unit in Ningbo

April 03/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Sinopec Zhenhai Refining and Chemical, part of Sinopec Group, has planned to take its No. 3 Polypropylene (PP) unit off-stream in April 2020, according to Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that the company is likely to start maintenance at the unit on April 9, 2020. The unit is expected to remain under maintenance for about one week.

Located at Ningbo, China, the No. 3 PP unit has a production capacity of 350,000 mt/year.

As MRC reported earlier, Sinopec Corp is set to launch a new USD5.7 billion refining and petrochemical complex in the south of the country in second-quarter 2020 using crude oil from Kuwait as a key feedstock. The project being developed by Asias top refiner, a 200,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) plant in Zhanjiang, a coastal city in Guangdong province, will become the third greenfield refinery-petrochemical complex to be built in China within a space of two years.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market were 192,760 tonnes in January-February 2020, down by 6% year on year. Homopolymer PP accounted for the main decrease in imports.

China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec Group) is a super-large petroleum and petrochemical enterprise group established in July 1998 on the basis of the former China Petrochemical Corporation. Sinopec Group"s key business activities include the exploration and production of oil and natural gas, petrochemicals and other chemical products, oil refining.
