PetroChina building jet fuel hydrotreater in Liaoning province

By an OGJ Online Correspondent

BEIJING, Oct. 15 -- PetroChina Co. Ltd. unit Jinzhou Petrochemical Corp. has begun building a jet fuel hydrotreater in northeastern China's Liaoning province.

The 400,000-tonne/year unit at the 110,500-b/d Jinzhou refinery will be completed in October 2002 at a cost of $7.85 million.

The project is part of PetroChina's plan to make Jinzhou one of its four refining centers by 2005. The other three will be Fushun City and Dalian City, both in northeastern China, and Lanzhou City in the northwest.

Jinzhou currently operates a 600,000 tonne/year diesel and gasoline hydrotreating unit.
