China's methanol logistics dilemma to be solved: methanol enterprises swallow bitter fruit after the embargo

wallpapers News 2020-08-24

Jinyindao news: on March 1, 2014, a traffic accident of methanol transport vehicle occurred suddenly in Shanxi Province, which once again aroused the reflection concern of the industry on methanol transportation.

"At about 14:50 on March 1, a coal hauling truck a fuel truck carrying liquid methanol collided in the Yanhou tunnel of Jinji expressway, causing fire explosion.

At least three people have been confirmed dead at the scene of the accident.

" On March 4, Lin Yuzhen, chairman of Dezhou harmonious Chemical Trading Co., Ltd., stopped at the Forum on the change trend development prospect of China's methanol market held in jinyindao, continued: "the Traffic Management Bureau of Shanxi Provincial Public Security Department has issued a notice that since March 5, all highway transportation vehicles of dangerous chemicals are prohibited.

The control time is from 0:00 on March 5, 2014 to 0:00 on March 5, 2015.

" (Note: as of March 13, the accident investigation team of the State Council said that a total of 31 people were killed 9 people were missing) it is not known whether it is due to the accent of Mr.

Lin or that the venue has not entered into discussion.

When it comes to the explosion, the participants are still whispering.

But when Lin Yuzhen mentioned that all the highways in Shanxi Province were forbidden to transport chemical vehicles, the noisy discussion stopped suddenly.

Of course, this is not just aware of the seriousness of the Shanxi embargo, but the collective silence of the participants still reflects the extraordinary nature of the matter.

Lin Yuzhen believes that the Shanxi embargo will not only lead to a substantial increase in methanol transportation costs of a considerable number of enterprises, but also lead to changes in China's methanol pattern.

China's methanol industry is characterized by separation of production marketing.

The consumption areas are mainly concentrated in the coastal areas, Shong other eastern regions, while the production areas are mainly in the northwest.

According to the monitoring data of Jinyin Isl, the characteristics of production moving westward are still strengthening.

In recent years, the newly built large methanol plants are mainly concentrated in northwest regions such as Shaanxi, Inner Mongolia, Qinghai Xinjiang.

According to the data of jinyindao, the effective methanol production capacity in China was 55.

9 million tons in 2013, of which the production capacity of Northwest China was 22.

8 million tons in 2013.

The northwest region concentrated more than 41% of China's methanol production capacity.

In contrast, the apparent consumption of methanol in China in 2013 was 33.

377 million tons, the consumption in the eastern region accounted for nearly 62% of the total dem.

The current situation of more production in the West more sales in the East has made the transportation of methanol in China an unavoidable topic.

At present, there are two routes for methanol in Northwest China, such as Yulin in Shaanxi Ordos in Inner Mongolia, entering Hebei, Shong Northern Jiangsu markets.

The south line refers to the G20 Qingdao Yinchuan expressway, which is a national trunk line across the north of China.

It starts from Qingdao City, Shong Province, passes through Weifang, Zibo, Jinan, Shijiazhuang, Taiyuan, Lishi, Jingbian Dingbian, ends at Yinchuan, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, with a total length of 1610km.

Large methanol manufacturers such as jinchengtai (Ordos City, Inner Mongolia), Shilin (Ordos City, Inner Mongolia), Yulin Yankuang (Yulin City, Shaanxi Province), yutianhua (Yulin City, Shaanxi Province), Shenmu chemical industry (Yulin City, Shaanxi Province), Mengda (Ordos City, Inner Mongolia), Datuhe (Lvliang Lishi, Shanxi Province), Yida chemical industry (Jiexiu, Shanxi Province) other external sources of methanol, their methanol will be transported to the East The Shanxi section of Qingdao Yinchuan expressway is the only way.

However, after the Shanxi ban was issued, the transport vehicles were forced to bypass the north line G6 Beijing Tibet expressway or turn to Shanxi provincial highway.

The Beijing Tibet Expressway starts from Beijing ends at Lhasa, Tibet, passing through seven provinces regions including Beijing, Hebei, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, Gansu, Qinghai Tibet.

Cities passing through: Beijing, Zhangjiakou, Ulanqab, Hohhot, Baotou, Bayannur, Wuhai, Yinchuan, Wuzhong, Zhongwei, Baiyin, Lanzhou, Xining, Golmud, Lhasa.

According to the data provided by Lin Yuzhen, chairman of Dezhou harmonious chemical trading company, it takes nearly one day for the northern line to reach the central eastern part of Shong Province.

At present, the companies taking the north line are mainly Xinao (Ordos City, Inner Mongolia), Jiutai (Ordos City, Inner Mongolia), Yidong (Ordos City, Inner Mongolia), Yigao (Hohhot City, Inner Mongolia) Donghua (Ordos City, Inner Mongolia).

(as shown in the figure below) after the embargo, methanol enterprises secretly swallow bitter fruit.

After the embargo, vehicles are diverted from the original highway to provincial transportation, which means that the transportation cost is bound to rise the time will be extended.

Once the provincial road is congested, the cost can not be controlled.

According to the data provided by Lin Yuzhen, chairman of Dezhou harmonious chemical trading company, the transportation cost of the north line is about 150 yuan / ton higher than that of the south line.

Chen liming, the person in charge of Zhengzhou Batong Bulk Chemical Co., Ltd., also provided a set of data: after the explosion accident of promoted high-speed methanol vehicle, the freight of methanol ordered in Yulin before the accident was 280 yuan / ton, immediately after the accident, it rose to 420 yuan / ton, an increase of 50%.

After Shanxi issued the embargo order, methanol enterprises previously taking the southern route will have no choice but to bypass the north line.

The transportation cost will undoubtedly increase by a large part compared with the methanol enterprises that originally took the north line, the methanol enterprises on the southern line will bear more transportation costs.

How serious is this going to be? Lin Yuzhen believes that this will cause the change of methanol pattern in China.

According to jinyindao, the traffic ban has a significant impact on the central Shong market.

Affected by the expected increase in freight rates on provincial roads, the freight level of methanol delivered to central Shong rose by 100-150 yuan / ton in early March.

At that time, there was a rare situation of tight supply in the central part of Shong Province.

The local large factories increased their offer by 70-100 yuan / ton.

However, it is difficult for methanol enterprises to pass on the cost increase caused by the increase of freight.

According to Lin Yuzhen, in recent years, the profits of methanol transportation enterprises have been squeezed too low by methanol enterprises end users, it is difficult for transportation enterprises to absorb the rising freight charges.

"In the spring of 2014, the lowest freight from Inner Mongolia new Olympics to Shong was 210 yuan.

At such a price, not to mention the loss of a 600000 yuan" Tianlong "transport vehicle, even two drivers could not afford to spend 600 yuan a day.

" there was no room for price reduction in highway transportation prices.

As for how to share the rising transportation costs, Lin Yuzhen also gave his own judgment.

In 2014, when the economic situation is still grim, the possibility of transferring the costs to the downstream is very small, it mainly depends on the methanol enterprises to reduce their own prices.

The bitter fruit caused by the embargo can only be swallowed by methanol enterprises themselves.

Why does it have to be road transportation? According to the relevant provisions of the state, the coal chemical products are in order according to the risk degree.
