Sinopec begins work on 270-km crude pipeline in northern China


By an OGJ Online Correspondent

BEIJING, June 18 -- China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (Sinopec) has begun building a crude oil pipeline in northern China to link three refineries to the Huangdao terminal in Qingdao, Shandong province.

The move will ease a domestic crude supply shortage, said Sinopec.

The 270-km line will link the terminal with the 9.5 million tonne/year Yanshan Petrochemical Corp.'s refinery in Beijing, Tianjin Petrochemical Corp.'s 6 million tonne/year refinery in Tianjin, and Sinopec's 2.5 million tonne/year refinery at Cangzhou of Hebei province.

The three refineries have previously operated on crude from Daqing, Liaohe, Dagang, Shengli, and Huabei fields.

The line will be completed in the fourth quarter.

Earlier this month, the Cangzhou refinery began running on imported Russian oil. Tianjin runs a wide range of crudes, including Saudi Arabian sour.
