FACTBOX-China's new commercial crude storage, refineries in 2021

    Nov 18 (Reuters) - Chinese private refiners, storage firms and port
operators are expected to lead the building of commercial crude oil tank farms
in 2021, overshadowing state refiners and extending a storage boom that
contributed to record stockpiles this year.            
    An estimated 25.4 million cubic metres, or 164 million barrels, of tank
space is expected to be added between the start of the fourth quarter this year
and the end of 2022, according to a Reuters tally based on interviews with
companies and company statements and local media reports. 
    Of these, about 100 million barrels, equivalent to nine days of China's
crude imports, would come from investors that exclude state refiners Sinopec
 and PetroChina and will likely be ready for use in 2021.
    Firms include private refiners such as Hengli Petrochemical and
Shandong Hongrun Group, port authorities in Qingdao and Rizhao, as well as
storage operator Zhonggu in east China's Zhoushan free trade zone.  
    The list below shows planned commercial storage projects as well as planned
crude distillation units (CDUs) in China.
