On July 17, Jilin Petrochemical laid foundations for the construction of a 10 Mt/a refining expansion project and a 400 kt/a ABS project.

Jilin Petrochemical now has a refining capacity of 7.5 million tons per year. The 10 Mt/a refining expansion project is composed of six plants, including atmospheric and vacuum distillation, catalytic cracking, gas fractionation, diesel hydrogenation, gasoline hydrogenation and sulfur recovery. The sulfur recovery plant will become operational by the end of this year, and the other five will be completed and put into operation in October 2010.

Consisting of a 200 kt/a production line for special-purpose materials, a 200 kt/a production line for general-purpose materials, and a 320 kt/a styrene unit, the 400 kt/a ABS project is expected to become operational in October 2011. By then, Jilin Petrochemical's ABS and styrene production capacity will reach 580 kt/a and 460 kt/a respectively, meanwhile increasing production of ethylene, propylene and other chemical materials by 860,000 tons per year.
