By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Nov. 26 -- CNOOC and Shell Petrochemicals Co. Ltd. (CSPC) awarded a contract to Technip-Coflexip in a joint venture with Chiyoda Corp. and Mitsubishi Corp. of Japan for the engineering, procurement, and construction of a world-scale petrochemical complex at Huizhou, Guandong Province in southern China.

The complex will produce 560,000 tonnes/year of styrene monomer, 250,000 tonnes/year of propylene oxide, 135,000 tonnes/year of polyols, 60,000 tonnes/year of mono-propylene glycol, and 320,000 tonnes/year of mono-ethylene glycol.

The project is a part of CSPC's $4.3 billion Nanhai petrochemical project, one of the largest Sino-foreign joint venture projects in China (OGJ Online, Nov. 6, 2002).

Engineering for the project will be executed in Kuala Lumpur by Technip Malaysia and in Shanghai by Technip Tianchen.

The plants are expected to be on stream by the end of 2005, producing about 2.3 million tonnes/year of products and generating as much as $1.7 billion in products sales, primarily supplying customers in Guangdong and the high consumption areas of China's coastal economic zones.
