SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Panjin Taipinghe Bitumen plans to postpone the start-up of its 100,000 tonne/year solvent oil plant at Panjin in Liaoning province to December because of delays in construction, a company source said on Thursday.

The Chinese producer originally planned to start up the solvent oil plant in October.

Part of the feedstock supply for the solvent oil plant, when started up, will be provided by its 150,000 tonne/year crude distillation unit (CDU) and 100,000 tonne/year hydrogenation unit at the same site, the source said.

Panjin Taipinghe primarily produces white oil, bitumen, lubricants, base oil and fuel oil in China.
