On July 9, Liaoyang Petrochemical started building china's first 10 million-ton refining base solely for processing crude oil imported from Russia.

On February 17 this year, China and Russia signed a long-term oil trade framework agreement, under which Russia will supply China 15 million tons of crude oil per annum from 2011 to 2030.

Liaoyang Petrochemical's new refining project mainly includes a 1 Mt/a hydrocracking unit, a 2 Mt/a hydrofining unit, and a 30 kt/a desulfurization and sulfur recovery unit, as well as new storage tanks, a recycled water plant, a substation and other supporting facilities. All the works are expected to be completed by the end of 2010.

In addition to Beijing Ⅳ standard diesel, the project will also produce naphtha and other petrochemical raw materials, providing substantial support to the downstream aromatics industry.
