SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec subsidiary Jinan Petrochemical has delayed the start-up of its 3m tonne/year crude distillation unit (CDU) at Jinan in Shandong province to late September, a company source said on Friday.

Jinan Petrochemical had originally planned to start up the unit in July.

The delay was caused by slower-than-scheduled construction progress, according to the source.

Jinan Petrochemical currently operates a 5m tonne/year CDU at the same site. It processes mainly domestic Shengli crude and imported crude.
