CNPC lets contract for grassroots refinery

Dec 30, 2014 12:00 AM

Yunnan Petrochemical Co. Ltd., jointly owned in part by PetroChina Co. Ltd.—the publicly listed arm of state-owned China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC)—has let contracts to a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corp. to provide control systems for a 200,000-b/d grassroots refinery in Yunnan Province in far southwestern China.

Yokogawa China will provide an oil movement and storage (OMS) system as well as a CENTUM VP integrated production control system to monitor and control the main installations at the refining complex, Yokogawa said.

The Yunnan refining project, to be built in the Anning industrial park of Kunming City, is scheduled to be commissioned in 2015, the service provider said.

Values of the contracts were not disclosed.

PetroChina released an environmental impact assessment for the Kunming refinery in 2013, at which time the company had planned for a 2014 start-up of the plant.

While it did not disclose specific details, PetroChina said in its 2014 interim report to investors that key projects in connection with the Yunnan refinery proceeded as planned during the first half of the year.

The refinery will have 13 processing units and 77 auxiliary and public installations, according to an August release from China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering Corp., a CNPC construction affiliate.

In addition to PetroChina, Saudi Aramco and Yuntianhua Group Co. Ltd. also own interest in the Yunnan complex.
