Hengli to start installation of ethylene and PTA projects
Petrochemical’s 1.5 million tons/year ethylene project and 5 million tons/year PTA project installation mobilization conference was held in Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian Changxing Island) Industrial Park to ensure ethylene glycol, polyolefin and styrene units start operation in September 2019; ethylene unit and No.4 PTA unit put into operation on October 20th; No.5 PTA line into production in early March, 2020.
Hengli Group has built three PTA production lines with an annual capacity of 6.6 million tons in Changxing Island. Hengli Group invested another 8 billion yuan last year, to start construction of two 2.5 million tons/year PTA production lines.
After the project is completed, the PTA capacity of Hengli Petrochemical will reach 12 million tons/year, further consolidating Hengli’s global leading position in the PTA field.
With a total investment of 22 billion yuan and advanced technology of Technip and SD, Hengli uses the naphtha and dry gas from the refining project as raw materials to build the 1.5 million tons of ethylene, 1.8 million tons of ethylene glycol, 800,000 tons of polyolefin and 720,000 tons of styrene units.
