The refining units will begin trial operation between April and May, and ethylene units will start in mid June, the Fujian Provincial State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission said in a statement. The Fujian Refining & Petrochemical Co.’s annual crude processing capacity will be tripled to 12 million metric tonnes a year, or 240,000 barrels a day. The venture is adding four petrochemical units, including a so-called steam cracker that will produce 800,000 tonnes of ethylene a year.
