The petrochemical units will produce 1.2 million tons of ethylene annually. Crude oil feedstock will be fed to the facility via the Kazakhstan-China pipeline. Dushanzi Petrochemical, is a wholly owned subsidiary of PetroChina Co. Ltd.

Emerson will supply more than 25,000 Rosemount instruments, about 2,500 Fieldvue DVC6000 HART smart positioners, 2000 Fisher control valves, and more than 400 Micro Motion Coriolis flowmeters. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2008.

“Emerson provides the multiple benefits of proven quality instrumentation products, reliable engineering consultation, superior service, extensive experience in the petrochemical industry, and a proven track record in China,” says Liu Jufa, vice president, Dushanzi Petrochemcials.
