SINGAPORE (ICIS)--PetroChina, Qatar Petroleum (QP) and Shell are planning to start building their refining and petrochemical complex joint venture at Taizhou in Zhejiang province in 2012, a source from Shell said on Monday.

The capacity of the project's refinery, which was originally planned at 400,000 bbl/day, has been downsized to 300,000 bbl/day, the source said, without elaborating further.

The companies aim to start operating the complex in 2015, the source added.

Under a preliminary agreement made two years ago, PetroChina holds a 51% stake in the project, while Shell and QP each hold a 24.5% stake.
