PetroChina Ningxia refinery to resume operations

August 10/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- PetroChinas Ningxia refinery is scheduled to resume operation of its 100,000 barrels per day oil refining units in mid-August after an overhaul, reported Reuters.

The plant in northwestern China began 45 days of maintenance on July 1.

As of Thursday, 84% of the work had been completed, the Ningxia refinery said on Friday.

In 2019, the refinery processed 4.53 million tonnes of crude oil and produced 3.82 million tonnes of refined oil products.

As MRC wrote previously, PetroChina Ningxia PC, part of PetroChina, is in plans to bring on-stream its polypropylene (PP) plant following a turnaround. The company is likely to resume operations at the plant on August 18, 2020. The plant was shut for maintenance on July 1, 2020. Located at Yinchuan, China, the PP plant has a production capacity of 110,000 mt/year.

According to MRC's DataScope report, PP imports into Russia rose in the first six months of 2020 by 21% year on year to 105,300 tonnes. Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in imports.

PetroChina Company Limited, is a Chinese oil and gas company and is the listed arm of state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation, headquartered in Dongcheng District, Beijing. It is China's biggest oil producer.
