The world’s rapidly-developing oil refining technology has played an important role in acceleration of industrial upgrading process. Technology of large-scale refinery, facility and equipment develops in steps with technology of process integration and unit combination, leading to further acceleration of oil refning and chemical integration technology. Oil refning technological development is focused on production technology for clean oil products, heavy oil processing technology, diversification technology for olefin raw materials, and production technology for high value-added chemicals. China has established a perfect and mature technological system for its oil refning industry, which is able to satisfy the demand for the domestic oil refning and chemical industrial development. In the future, China’s technological development will mainly aim at refning and chemical integration, cleanness, intelligence and fne refnement. The concrete suggestions include more efforts for research on integration and optimization of large-scale refneries and bases with a refning and chemical integration, emphasis on process technology and catalyst development for heavy oil processing and clean oil products, application technology for optimization and modernization of old units and low value-added products, technological development for intelligent refning and chemical production process and optimization of the process, and enhancement of revolutionary petrochemical technological development.
