The reporter learned from the Sinopec/SABIC Tianjin Petrochemical Company located in the Dagang District of Tianjin that the company's largest single ethylene installation in China reached its goal of annually producing 1 million tons of ethylene at 3:00 p.m. on Nov. 24, 38 days ahead of schedule, and will certainly surpass its production plan in 2011.

All the technical and economic indexes of the installation continue to remain at the benchmark levels of the industry. The year of 2011 is the first goal-reaching year of the installation since it successfully passed the test run and was put into service in January 2010.

Relying on its integrated-refinery advantage, the project's energy consumption is 508 kilograms of standard oil per ton, which set the best monthly record of China in 2011. Some 78 percent of the installation was made in China, and the operation of the installation is very stable too.

The cracked-gas compressor, known as the "heart" of the installation, is still in good condition after running for 23 months. The project's newly added water consumption of 3,000 tons per hour completely comes from desalted seawater, demonstrating the installation's circular economy.
