According to media reports, Shell and the China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC) have agreed to expand capacity of their 50:50 joint venture company, Shell Nanhai, in Huizhou, Guangdong Province, China. The parties have signed a heads of agreement (HOA) to construct a steam cracker along with ethylene derivative units including a propylene oxide-styrene monomer (POSM) unit.

Once the expansion is completed, the complex’s ethylene capacity is expected to double to around 2 million tons/year.

Market sources also reported that CNOOC has already begun construction of a new petrochemical complex as part of its Huizhou Phase 2 expansion project while the new facility is expected to begin commercial runs within two years. The projects also include 13 downstream petrochemical units.
