CNOOC and Shell Cooperate on Polycarbonate


On January 13, 2020, China National Offshore Oil Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "CNOOC") announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, CNOOC Refining & Chemical Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "CNOOC Refining & Chemical") and Shell Nanhai Private Limited (hereinafter referred to as "Shell") has signed a memorandum of understanding. The two parties will cooperate in the development and construction of a world-scale polycarbonate plant.

The polycarbonate plant developed and constructed by CNOOC will use a green chemical process that uses carbon dioxide emitted from the plant as raw materials and uses Shell’s diphenyl carbonate technology, which has great advantages in comprehensive energy consumption of products, and combine with melting polycarbonate technology of German EPC company to produce polycarbonate products. While producing polycarbonate products, it has the potential to produce alkyl carbonate series products for lithium-ion battery manufacturing, which will play an important role in the energy transition.

The polycarbonate plant will be built at the CNOOC Shell Joint Venture Chemical Base in Huizhou, Guangdong. Founded in 2000, CNOOC Shell was built and operated as a world-scale petrochemical plant in Daya Bay Economic and Technological Development Zone, Huizhou, Guangdong. The first-phase project was put into production in 2006. After the second-phase project was put into production in April 2018, the total ethylene production capacity increased to 2.2 million tons per year, making it the largest monomer ethylene production plant in China.

There will also be a research and development center that will be constructed concurrently with the polycarbonate production plant. This polycarbonate research and development center will be closely integrated with the market and production, and continuously develop high-quality and differentiated new products that meet market demand. Earlier, in mid-2018, CNOOC and Royal Dutch Shell signed a multi-billion-dollar memorandum of understanding for cooperation. The polycarbonate plant signed this time is in this large-scale integrated refining and chemical base.

Regardless for domestic or foreign petrochemical companies, Guangdong has become a global hotspot for investment of new construction or expansion. The expansion of production capacity in recent years has been remarkable. The province has four major petrochemical industrial bases in Zhanjiang, Maoming, Huizhou and Jieyang, all of which have millions of tons of oil refining and large ethylene production capacity. It is a well-known leading petrochemical province in China. Among the above four bases, Sinopec owns two (Maoming and Zhanjiang). CNOOC owns one (Huizhou), and PetroChina owns one (Jieyang).

中海油壳牌发力聚碳酸酯


2020年1月13日,中国海洋石油集团有限公司(以下称“中国海油”)获悉,该公司旗下全资子公司中海石油炼化有限责任公司(以下称“中海炼化”)已与壳牌南海私有有限公司(以下称“壳牌”)签订谅解备忘录,双方将合作开发建设世界级规模的聚碳酸酯装置。

中国海油开发建设的聚碳酸酯装置将采用绿色化工工艺,使用工厂排放的二氧化碳作为原料,采用壳牌开发的在产品综合能耗方面有着较大优势的碳酸二苯酯技术,与德国EPC公司熔融法聚碳酸酯技术联合生产聚碳酸酯产品。在生产聚碳酸酯产品的同时,具有生产用于锂离子电池制造的碳酸烷基系列产品的潜能,将在能源转型中发挥重要作用。

据了解,聚碳酸酯装置将建在位于广东惠州的中海壳牌合资化工基地。中海壳牌成立于2000年,在广东省惠州市大亚湾经济技术开发区建设并运营一世界级规模的石化联合工厂。一期项目于2006年投产,在二期项目于2018年4月投产后,乙烯总产能增加至220万吨/年,是中国在运行的最大单体乙烯生产工厂。

与聚碳酸酯生产装置同步建设的还将有研发中心,该聚碳酸酯研发中心将与市场、生产紧密结合,持续开发满足市场需求的高品质、差异化新产品。此前,早在2018年中旬,中国海洋石油总公司和荷兰皇家壳牌公司签署了一项数十亿美元的合作谅解备忘录。此次签署的聚碳酸酯装置,就在这一大型炼化一体化基地中。

而无论是对于国内还是国外的石化企业,广东已经成为全球竞相投资的热点,或是新建或是扩建,近几年产能的扩张速度令人侧目。省内坐拥湛江、茂名、惠州和揭阳四大石化产业基地,均布局千万吨级别的炼油及大乙烯产能,是国内当之无愧的石化龙头省份。上述四大基地中,中石化拥有两座(茂名、湛江),中海油(惠州)和中石油各一座(揭阳)。
