Analysis of global planned isomerization capacity of refineries shows that China has the highest capacity globally with 204 800 bpd during 2018 to 2021. Nigeria and Iran follow with 106 400 bpd and 58 300 bpd respectively, according to GlobalData.

Presently, China accounts for 29% of the total global planned isomerization capacity additions in 2021. A total of four planned refineries with isomerization capacity of 204 800 bpd are expected to start operations by 2021. Among these, Dayushan Island refinery has the highest isomerization capacity of 85 200 bpd, followed by Jieyang and Dalian III refineries with a capacity of 44 000 bpd and 42 600 bpd, respectively.

Nigeria contributes about 15% of total global planned isomerization capacity additions in 2021. The country has 3 planned refineries with isomerization capacity of 106 400 bpd expected to start operations by 2021. Lagos I refinery has the highest isomerization capacity of 69 200 bpd, followed by Ibafon and Ibeno I refineries with capacities of 26 600 bpd and 10 600 bpd, respectively.

Iran contributes about 8% of total global planned isomerization capacity additions in 2021. Iran has three planned refineries with isomerization capacity of 58 300 bpd. Pars refinery has the highest isomerization capacity of 30 000 bpd, followed by Kermanshah II and Mazandaran I refineries with capacities of 16 000 bpd and 12300 bpd, respectively.

Saudi Arabia, Philippines, and Malaysia are the other major countries that contribute 6 percent each to the total global planned isomerization capacity additions in 2021. Saudi Arabia, Philippines, and Malaysia are expected to add a planned capacity of 44 000 bpd, 42 600 bpd and 39 000 bpd, respectively, through Jizan, Manila and Pengerang refineries.

Indonesia contributes about 5% of total global planned isomerization capacity additions in 2021. Palu refinery is the only planned refinery in the country which has isomerization capacity of 33 000 bpd and is expected to come online by 2019.

Russia, Turkey and Brunei collectively contribute about 66 200 bpd to the global planned isomerization capacity in 2021, which is about 9% of the global total.
