Industry Overview Development of the petrochemical and fine chemical industries


  By the end of 2018, the annual crude oil processing capacity of petrochemical enterprises in the city has reached 28 million tons, with 315 petrochemical enterprises of all sizes, total assets of about 180 billion yuan and 30,000 employees. There were 91 petrochemical and fine chemical enterprises above the designated size in the city, with main business income of 18.98 billion yuan, tax paid of 10.03 billion yuan by the whole industry, profit of 3.6 billion yuan, and total crude oil processing capacity of 23.633 million tons in 2018.


  Oil and Gas Exploration. The Liaohe Oilfield, one of the largest land oil fields in China, is located here, with a total proven oil reserve of 2.1 billion tons and natural gas reserves of 178.4 billion cubic meters. According to the needs of the transformation and development strategy, oil and gas production has changed from high to stable production since 2009. The annual output of crude oil has remained at 10 million tons, and the annual output of natural gas has remained at 700 million cubic meters. 


  Special asphalt and lubricant base oil. Panjin has become the largest high-grade road asphalt and a full range of lubricant base oil production bases, with the highest production capacity in China. At present, the road asphalt production capacity is 5.5 million tons/year, and the lubricant base oil production capacity is 1.8 million tons/year, of which the naphthenic lubricant base oil is 1.4 million tons/year and the paraffin-based lubricant base oil is 400,000 tons/year. 


  Fine chemicals. There are Dioctyl phthalate of 240,000 tons/year, 150,000 tons/year 1,4-butanediol, 100,000 tons/year phthalic anhydride, and 60,000 tons/year polytetramethylene ether. Alcohol (PTMEG), 40,000 tons / year ethylene oxide derivative series, 8000 tons / year catalyst production capacity. With the completion of the joint venture of 240,000 tons/year of PVC plasticizer and 70,000 tons/year of phthalic anhydride in the second phase of UPC Group, Panjin will become the country's largest production base of ethylene oxide and its derivatives, 1,4- butanediol and phthalic anhydride plasticizer.


  Synthetic Rubber. There are 3 kinds of synthetic rubber varieties in Panjin City with a production capacity of 160,000 tons/year,including butyl rubber (60,000 tons / year) and styrene butadiene rubber(100,000 tons / year). With the completion of the 80,000 tons/year butadiene rubber and other projects of Shengyou, Panjin will become the largest synthetic rubber industrial base in China, with 4 rubber types and 240,000 tons/year of synthetic rubber production capacity. 


  Synthetic Resin. The annual production capacity of synthetic resin is 1 million tons in Panjin. With the completion of Huajin Aramco Project and Bora Light Hydrocarbon Comprehensive Utilization Project, it will increase the production capacity of synthetic resin by 1.2 million tons per year, and finally form a production capacity of 2.2 million tons of synthetic resin. There are all kinds of new chemical materials production capacity of 210,000 tons, and will be a production capacity of 360,000 tons of new kinds of chemical materials in the future.
