GUANGZHOU (ICIS)--China’s Fujian Refining & Petrochemical (FREP) is planning to complete the expansion of its 240,000 bbl/day refinery and 800,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker at Quanzhou in Fujian by late 2013, a company source said on Wednesday.
The refinery and cracker would have a capacity of 280,000 bbl/day and 1.1m tonnes/year respectively after debottlenecking works that are expected to begin in the first half of 2012, said the source.
