Maoming Petrochemical Corp, parent of Maoming Petrochemical Shihua, has raised its annual oil refining capacity to 13.5 million tonnes from 9.5 million tonnes. Maoming boosted its refining capacity after putting into operation a fourth set of distillation facilities, Xinhua said. The new facilities made Maoming the mainland's first oil refiner to have capacity exceeding 10 million tonnes.
