China's CNPC completes upgrade at Kazakh's Shymkent refinery

China’s state energy group China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC) has completed an upgrade at Kazakhstan’s Shymkent refinery, in which it has a stake, allowing the plant to produce higher quality fuels, it said.

CNPC started test runs early in August on a 2 million tonne-per-year catalytic cracking unit at the Shymkent plant, one of three refineries operating in the Central Asian nation.

The upgrade, which includes an isomerisation unit that started in June last year, raises the plant’s fuel quality to Euro IV and V from the previous Euro II.

Shymkent, in southern Kazakhstan, is half owned by Kazakh state oil and gas company KazMunaiGas and half by PetroKazakhstan, a joint venture of KazMunaiGas and CNPC.
