State-run Taiwanese refiner CPC Corp said on Monday it plans to start trial runs at new refining units located in the south of the country in May, delayed from earlier this year.

The units include a crude distillation unit (CDU) with a capacity of 150,000 barrels per day (bpd), two hydrotreaters with a total capacity of 70,000 bpd, and a 50,000-bpd condensate splitter.

Integration of the new units with its refinery in Talin took longer than expected, a spokesman said.

The company has bought its first Algerian Saharan Blend crude cargo in six months which can be partially processed at the splitter, he said.

Separately, CPC has also purchased its first Kurdish KBT crude, produced in northern Iraq, the spokesman said.

CPC's crude processing capacity in Talin will rise to 350,000 bpd, up from the current 300,000 bpd as a 100,000-bpd older unit will be scrapped. The company also operates a 200,000-bpd refinery in Taoyuan.
