Emerson chosen to automate hydrotreating unit in one of China's largest refineries

Emerson Process Management announced that it has been chosen to automate a 1.5 million tons per year hydrotreating unit in a refinery in Dalian, China. The refinery is owned by Dalian West Pacific Petrochemical Co. Ltd., better known as WEPEC, a joint venture between Sinochem, PetroChina and Total.

The refinery is one of the few locations in China currently able to process sour crude. This hydrotreater modernization investment is the second phase in a five-year plan to upgrade the refinery facilities to increase crude oil processing capacity from 8 to 10 million tons per year (Mtpy), equal to 160,000 to 200,000 barrels per calendar day (bpcd).

Emerson will provide on-site support and service for the WEPEC refinery, according to Xia Yi of WEPEC. The project is being managed and implemented by Emerson China, which has strong local engineering and project management skills, complemented by strong service support.
