CNOOC lets contract for ethylene plant

CNOOC Oil & Petrochemicals Co. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC), has awarded Technip a contract to supply its proprietary ethylene technology and process design package for a grassroots 1 million tonne/year (tpy)-ethylene plant in Huizhou, Guangdong Province.

The contract also covers technical support during detailed engineering, pre-commissioning and start-up, according to a Dec. 19 release from Technip.

Production from the ethylene plant will feed other downstream units at the complex, including a 300,000-tpy grassroots cumene plant, Technip said.

Currently underway, the project is scheduled for mechanical completion by mid-2015.

The ethylene plant comes as part of phase 2 of CNOOC’s Huizhou refinery integration project, which was approved in May 2013 by China’s National Development and Reform Commission, according to a release by the Chinese government.
