Sinopec prepares refinery for 2020 IMO rule

09 Jan 2018

Chinese refiner Sinopec has purchased a license from oil and gas company Eni for the construction of a refining plant based on Eni Slurry Technology (EST).

EST is able to convert refining residues entirely into high-quality light products while eliminating both liquid and solid refining residues.

“The plant will replace the existing pet-coke production line, with significant environmental benefits in compliance with the new IMO (International Maritime Organization) regulations concerning sulphur contained in bunker fuel,” says an Eni statement.

As part of the licensing agreement, Eni will provide Sinopec with the basic engineering project (Process Design Package) and other services, such as operational and technical training, as well as assistance during the development phase and the implementation of detailed engineering, and during the pre-commissioning and start up phases.

Sinopec will be responsible for detailed engineering and construction operations. The plant is scheduled to be completed by 2020.
