Reuters, May 15, 2018

China’s CNPC is expected to start operating an expanded refinery in northern China with an annual processing capacity of 10 million tonnes (200,000 barrels per day) in October, the state oil firm said on Monday. The Huabei Petrochemical plant, in Renqiu of Hebei province, will supply the capital city of Beijing with premium gasoline “Jing six”, with quality higher than Euro five, as well as aviation fuel to the new Beijing airport. The refinery previously had a capacity of 100,000 bpd. A pipeline to supply jet fuel to the new Beijing airport, in southern suburb of Daxing, is expected to be completed at the end of September, CNPC said. CNPC is also adding a refined fuel pipeline connecting Fushun and Jinzhou, both in northeast Liaoning province, and a separate pipeline linking Jinzhou with central Chinese city of Zhengzhou. The state firm operates two refineries in Jinzhou.
