The two foreign firms will hold 25% shares in the complex and Sinopec will hold the remaining 50%. Contracts are expected to be signed on the deal as early as July with construction beginning in 2005. The complex is planned to include a refinery with a capacity of 12 million tons per year and a plant capable of producing 800,000 tons of ethylene per year.
