Sinopec has launched the first phase of the Gulei refining complex in China. The complex, a 50:50 JV between Sinopec's Fujian Petrochemical Company and Taiwan Xuteng Investment Company, has invested 4.28 billion dollars for its development which will include an ethylene plant, a styrene unit and seven downstream petrochemical units.
BASF and Sinopec have plans to expand production capacities for numerous downstream chemical plants at its Verbund site in Nanjing, China. This includes the construction of a new tert-butyl acrylate plant to meet the growing demand for specialty chemicals in the country.
Im chinesischen Qianjiang hat Sinopec eine neue Produktionsanlage für Bleichpulverkonzentrat mit einer Jahreskapazität von 12.000 Tonnen errichtet. Der Standort ist in der Lage, 100.000 Tonnen Desinfektionsmittel im Jahr herzustellen und ist damit größter Produzent weltweit.
The Sinopec Qilu-Shengli Oilfield CCUS project will be China’s maiden megaton-scale CCUS project. Expected to commence operations by the year end, the project will act as an ‘artificial carbon cycle’ model which will assist the country to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.
Eni has sold the licence and basic engineering project to the Chinese company Sinopec, for the construction of a refining plant based on the Eni Slurry Technology (EST). The plant will be built at the Sinopec refinery in Maoming, in Guandong province.
Sinopec and The Linde Group announced that they have established a $ 160 million joint venture to supply industrial gases to local customers from key industries within the Ningbo Chemical Industrial Zone in China’s Zhejiang province.
