Singapore — China National Offshore Oil Corporation, or CNOOC, and Shell International Petroleum Company Limited signed a memorandum of understanding to build an integrated petrochemical site at the Nanhai site in Huizhou, Guangdong, Shell said in a statement late Wednesday.
In May this year, the two companies started up the second steam cracker at Nanhai, which has an ethylene production capacity of 1.2 million mt/year. The complex's downstream units include styrene monomer and propylene oxide. This MOU will expand their current collaboration, Shell said in the statement.
