SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC) has delayed the start-up of its chemical project in Hainan province to late 2013 from the original schedule of July, a company source said on Friday.
The start-up was delayed by a rescheduling of the project's construction work, according to the source.
The first phase of the project primarily consists of a 2m tonne/year crude processing unit, a 1.2m tonne/year deep catalytic cracker (DCC) and an 80,000 tonne/year methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) plant.
The second phase will include a 200,000 tonne/year acrylonitrile (ACN) plant, a 70,000 tonne/year methyl methacrylate (MMA) plant and a 120,000 tonne/year styrene monomer (SM), according to the source.
