September 26, 2022 [Energyworld.com] – Chinese refiner Shenghong Petrochemical Corp, part of the listed Jiangsu Eastern Shenghong Co, has readied a new terminal to receive Very Large Crude Carriers and boost the refiner’s logistics efficiency, a company representative said.

 

The Lianyungang terminal in Jiangsu province is able to dock super tankers with capacity of 300,000 tonnes deadweight.

The refiner, which started trial operations at its 320,000 barrel per day crude distillation unit in May, is in the process of starting up secondary and petrochemical units, the company official said.

“The company is aiming to start producing aromatics next month and olefins by the end of the year,” the official said without providing a timeline for commercial operation.

However, trading sources told Reuters that the crude unit is now idled because of weak domestic refining margins.

The company representative declined to comment on the status of the unit.

Shenghong has been shipping in crude oil using smaller vessels from nearby large terminals.

Apart from the crude oil refinery, the $10 billion Shenghong complex includes a 2.8 million tonnes per year (tpy) paraxylene unit and 1.1 million tpy ethylene plant.

The refiner is believed to have bought 2 million barrels of December-arrival Upper Zakum crude, traders added.
