Ethylene output set to explode in China

25
May '09
The State Council, the highest decision making body in the Chinese government has recently announced the much awaited three year plan for the petrochemical sector. This plan is a bid to improve the functioning of the key sector.

As per the plan, the country hopes to produce 405 million tons of crude oil, 247.5 million tons of refined oil and 15.5 tons of ethane by 2011. The plan also targets to eliminate inefficient refineries whose capacity is below 1 million tons.

Now petrochemical clusters will be created in the Yangtze River Delta area, Pearl River Delta area and Bohai regions. Three or four refining bases with a capacity of 20 million tons each and several ethane manufacturing plants with a capacity of 2 millions tons each will be set up.

Ethylene production capacity is planned to be raised by 51.2 percent to 15.5 million tons per annum. Current output of ethylene in the country is less than 50 percent of the 21 million tons consumed by the enterprises in the country.

PetroChina will add an additional one million tons per year to its existing petrochemical plant in Dushanzi, Xinjiang province, along with plans to double ethylene output at Daqing, Heilongjiang province, to 1.2 million tons per annum.

Sinopec is also in the process of adding two 1 million tons per year ethylene plants, one in Ningbo and the other in Tianjin.
