Significant progress has been made in Tianjin’s three major chemical projects of tens of billions of dollars
Latest News: On July 22, we learned from the press conference of Tianjin Economic and Technological Development Zone (special session of Nangang Industrial Zone),
Tianjin further regards building a world-class green chemical new material base in Tianjin Nangang Industrial Zone at a high level as an important task to implement the strategy of manufacturing a city and promote the construction of a modern industrial system.
Tianjin Nangang Industrial Zone, as the only carrier for the high-quality development of the petrochemical industry in Tianjin in the future, after more than 10 years of development, has formed a crude oil storage capacity of over 10 million cubic meters, a receiving capacity of nearly 10 million tons of LNG, and a production capacity of nearly one million tons of lubricating oil. It has gathered a large number of coating production enterprises such as Nippon Paint, Dengta, and KCC, and has become a national new industrialization (petrochemical industry) demonstration base, a national energy reserve base, the largest lubricating oil base in the north, and a high-end coating production base.
Recently, Tianjin Nangang Industrial Zone, relying on the basic raw materials of major projects such as million tons of ethylene and MTO, focuses on the three main chains of special olefin derivatives, advanced chemical materials, high-end fine and special chemicals, and develops high-performance resins and specialty chemicals. 10 sub-industry chains, including composite materials, electronic information materials, biodegradation, electronic chemicals, and high-end fine chemicals, have been continuously extended, and a total investment of nearly 80 billion yuan has been planned to form a chain-strengthening chain-strengthening reserve project.
As of the end of June 2022, Nangang Industrial Zone has signed a total of 130 physical projects with a total investment of nearly 170 billion yuan. Among them, 90 enterprises have been completed and 24 projects are under construction. Among them, three tens of billions of chemical projects, such as Sinopec ethylene project, Tianjin Bohua Nangang new material base, and Zhongsha new material project, have made significant progress.
First, Sinopec Group invested more than 30 billion yuan in the ethylene project, using advanced technology at home and abroad such as Sinopec and INEOS to build 13 sets of production units including 1.2 million tons/year of ethylene and downstream series of new materials. The main products include high density Polyethylene (HDPE), Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), Polyolefin Elastomer (POE), α-olefin, UHMWPE, etc. Currently, the overall progress of the project is very fast, and a total investment of 6.5 billion yuan has been completed.
On July 16, the hoisting of the first large-scale equipment propylene tower was completed, marking that this super-large project officially entered the key stage of equipment installation and “wearing clothes and hats”. According to the schedule, the project will be fully handed over by the end of 2023 and put into production in the first half of 2024.
The second is Tianjin Bohua Nangang New Material Base, which has completed an investment of 21.7 billion yuan to build 1.8 million tons of MTO (methanol-to-olefins), 600,000 tons of caustic soda, 800,000 tons of polyvinyl chloride, and 200,000/450,000 tons of propylene oxide/benzene. 7 sets of devices including ethylene, 300,000 tons of polypropylene, and 100,000 tons of hydrogen peroxide, etc., and supporting construction of liquid chemical wharf and storage area.
After more than 3 years of construction, it was fully put into operation in the first half of this year, realizing the upgrade and iteration of the old company’s rebirth. It took the lead in the country to embark on a green, intensive and efficient development path for state-owned chemical enterprises to transform traditional salt chemical industry with modern petrochemical industry. Plan the second phase of the project.
The third is the Zhongsha New Material Project, with a total investment of 10.2 billion yuan and the construction of 260,000 tons of polycarbonate per year. The device adopts SABIC’s non-phosgene melting polycarbonate technology, which is the first domestic process and is at the world’s advanced level. The project has produced qualified products in the first half of the year.
In addition, 12 mid-to-downstream high-end fine chemical new material projects such as Huntsman Polyurethane, Nouryon Peroxide, and Xinyang Unsaturated Resin have also been completed and put into production. The district has ushered in a new stage of construction and commissioning of major projects.
In addition, Sinopec’s first and second phases of the LNG project have invested more than 18 billion yuan. The second berth was successfully put into operation at the end of last year, becoming the first dual-berth receiving terminal in China. Last year, it received and unloaded more than 6 million tons of LNG. The second phase of the project will be put into operation next year, and the unloading capacity will exceed 10 million tons after it is put into production. The Beijing Gas LNG project with a total investment of 20.1 billion yuan will be put into operation successively this year, and the unloading capacity will exceed 5 million tons after it is put into operation. After the two LNGs are put into production, Tianjin Nangang Industrial Zone will become the largest LNG receiving and unloading base in China.
The “14th Five-Year” Industrial High-Quality Development Plan of Tianjin Nangang Industrial Zone proposes that by 2025, Tianjin Nangang Industrial Zone will add 2 to 3 leading enterprises with an output value of more than 10 billion yuan, forming a batch of output value exceeding 1 billion yuan. The backbone enterprises and the “specialized, refined, special, and new” enterprises with an output value exceeding 100 million yuan, strive to rank among the top 30 chemical industry parks in China, the top 50 national green parks and the top 50 national smart parks, and build digital products with distinctive product characteristics and outstanding competitiveness. , Intelligent and green state-level chemical new material base.
