PetroChina Completes Construction at Expanded Daqing Refinery

PetroChina Daqing Petrochemical Co. completed construction of a unit at its plant in northeastern China and raised the annual crude-processing capacity to 10 million metric tons.

The project, with an investment of 1 billion yuan ($157 million), involves adding a crude distillation unit with processing capacity of 6 million tons a year, China National Petroleum Corp., the parent company, said on its website today. The facility will help meet feedstock demand for a 1.2 million ton-a-year ethylene unit.

The expanded refinery is scheduled to start operations in October, according to Daqing Petrochemical’s website.
