Job Dimensions 

CNOOC and Shell Petrochemicals Company Limited (CSPC), established in 2000, is one of the largest petrochemicals joint ventures in China, incorporated by China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), Royal Dutch Shell, and Guangdong Guangye Investment Group Company Limited (CPIL), with 50:50 Sino-foreign stakes. CSPC is the first large scale enterprise in the Daya Bay Petrochemicals Industrial Park, Huizhou City, Guangdong Province. CSPC mainly produces olefin and derivative products, supplying the domestic market as raw materials while providing customers with high quality service. CSPC’s products are widely used in agriculture, manufacture, construction industry, medicine and consumer goods, etc.

CSPC’s complex consists of 2 phases projects. Phase I (Nanhai Project, C1) started commercial operation in early 2006. C1 includes 11 major process units, utilities, storage and shipping facilities, as well as environmental protection facilities. It adopts 13 international licenses (including Shell’s proprietary technologies) and utilizes modern management systems and international standards in design, construction and operation. C1 has achieved 1000 ktpa ethylene capacity since 2012 and it has been supplying approximate 2.7 million tonnes petrochemical products to the market every year.

CSPC Phase 2 project (C2) started up in April 2018, including an ongoing project to build an ethylene cracker with 1200 ktpa ethylene production capacity and multiple downstream derivatives units, which CSPC officially assumed ownership from CNOOC in November, 2016. The C2 expansion includes also SMPO/POD units. Shell’s proprietary OMEGA, SMPO and Polyols technologies and domestic and international industry-leading technologies are applied to C2 project. This increases the volume and diversity of CSPC’s high quality product range, as well as enhances overall energy efficiency.

After C2’s start-up, CSPC will increase its ethylene capacity to 2,200 ktpa and supply more than 6 million tonnes of high quality products to the China market every year, becoming the biggest single-site ethylene plant in China.
