The Urumqi Petrochemical power station was commissioned in 1997 and originally constructed and operated by Century Huayang. In 2011, it seems the plant was handed over to the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC).[1] This facility is a cogeneration plant, with three furnaces and three engines, with a steam output of 900 tons per hour, and a power generation capacity of 100,000 kilowatt-hours.[2] It provides heating and electricity to Urumqi's petrochemical refinery, which is operated by PetroChina Co's Urumqi Petrochemical branch. In 2017, PetroChina's Urumqi Petrochemical branch installed desulfurization facilities for nearly all of their facilities.[3]


On November 30, 2017, a mechanical injury caused by human error occurred in the refinery of the CNPC's Urumqi Petrochemical branch, which caused 5 deaths, 2 serious injuries, 14 minor injuries, and a direct economic loss of 6,445,200 RMB.[4]
