Hengli Petrochemical selects ISODEWAXING technology from Chevron Lummus Global

As the world’s second largest lubricant market, China has been mostly depending on imports to satisfy its fast-growing Group III base oil demands. As Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) announces, this situation will be greatly improved by the recent addition of a Group II/III base oil plant at Hengli PetroChemical Co. which will employ CLG’s ISODEWAXING technology.

Hengli’s base oil plant is located within its refinery on Changxing island off the industrial seaport of Dalian. CLG’s ISODEWAXING technology was selected due to a combination of exceptionally high yields, extended cycle length, and outstanding base oil quality. With the plant in mechanical completion, full production is expected later in 2019, with capacity to make 350,000 t/y Group III and 190,000 t/y Group II base oils. CLG will provide startup support and to Hengli for smooth daily operation to maximize plant economics.

Chevron Lummus Global (CLG), a joint venture between Chevron U.S.A. Inc. and McDermott, is a leading process technology licensor for refining hydroprocessing technologies and alternative source fuels, as well as a global leader in catalyst system supply. CLG offers the most complete bottom-of-the-barrel solution for upgrading heavy oil residues.
