Moreover, its supporting facilities as 3.2 million cubic meters Commercial Crude Oil Reserve Depot, Beihai-Nanning Refined Oil Pipeline Project, and Zhanjiang-Tieshangang Crude Oil Pipeline Project are constructed simultaneously. With the capacity of processing 5 million t/a crude oil and producing 200,000 t/a polypropylene, BRCC mainly produces refined oil products, petroleum coke, sulfur, polypropylene, benzene, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and naphtha, which makes BRCC the most important energy production base in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
Originally named as Beihai Petrochemical Factory, BRCC was established in 1989, capable of processing 600,000 tons of crude oil per year. Beihai Petrochemical Factory was incorporated into the China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation as Beihai Branch in July 2002.
