PetroChina planning hydrocracking unit

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Mar. 1 -- PetroChina Co. Ltd. decided to use proprietary technology developed by UOP LLC, Des Plaines, Ill., in a hydrocracking unit to be built as part of a refinery expansion project in Dushanzi, Xinjiang Province in northwestern China.

Plans call for the hydrocracker to be commissioned in 2007. PetroChina is spending 27.2 billion yuan ($3.29 billion) for the overall expansion project to its refinery and petrochemical complex (OGJ Online, Feb. 23, 2005).

UOP said the unit will be configured as a once-through, single-stage unit to process 41,000 b/sd of a gas oil blend feedstock and produce diesel and ethylene feedstock.
