SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s biggest refiner Sinopec said on Thursday it is planning to start up its 100,000 tonne/year lubricant plant in Singapore in late 2012 instead of in October 2012 as it originally planned.

The company did not give a reason for the delay.

Sinopec started building the yuan (CNY) 580m ($92.1m) unit, which is its first lubricant plant outside China, in July 2011, it said in a statement.

The plant will primarily serve the Asia Pacific markets, particularly the ones in southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, according to the company.
