Shaanxi Yanchang Petroleum (Group) Co. Ltd. (Yanchang Petro) has let a contract to Yokogawa China Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corp., to supply control systems for two oil plant construction projects in China.
The first of these project orders is for an advanced 450,000-tonne/year coal-oil co-processing pilot plant that will convert coal and refining residues into diesel oil and other products under construction by Yanchang Petro’s subsidiary Oil-coal New Technology Corp., according to Yokogawa.
The second order is for the first phase of a coal tar hydrogenation plant that will produce light and heavy paraffin oil from coal tar to be constructed by Shaanxi Yanchang Petroleum Anyuan Chemical Co. Ltd., also a Yanchang Petro subsidiary. Once completed, the planned 1 million tpy plant will be one of the largest of its type in China, Yokogawa said.
Under the terms of its contract, Yokogawa will provide Yanchang Petro the CENTUM VP integrated control system for both projects as well as engineering and commissioning services, according to the company.
The two plants are scheduled to be commissioned in June, Yokogawa said. Both of these plants also will use KBR’s Veba Combi-Cracking process technology to convert petroleum residues into gasoline and diesel oil products, Yokogawa added.
