Hengli Petchem to Start Test-Running New Refinery on December 15
Dec. 17, 2018
Diesel fuel will run through the facilities via the pipes, and crude oil will be filled into the distillation tower around 7-10 days later. Experimental operations will occur for roughly 20 days and will utilize 500,000 tons of crude oil from Saudi Arabia. Normally, a new refinery will begin stable operations after several months since the test runs.
The unit will have a capacity of 400,000 bpd and will be the first private-owned chemical complex and refinery. Hengli will purchase 130,000 bpd of crude oil from Saudi Aramco for the unit.
