Plant & Technology
The Olefins Plant uses the technology licensed by Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) of USA. The plant has six SCORE furnaces of millisecond technology, of which five are usually operated and the sixth is used for de-coking or as standby. The feed stock Natural Gas Liquid (NGL) is fed into the fractionators where C5+ hydrocarbons are recovered at the bottom and C2 to C4 fractions are fed to the cracker furnaces along with recycle gases – ethane, propane and butane. Ethylene and Propylene are the main products of Olefins plant, while pentane, hydrogen and fuel gas are the by-products.

The Poly Ethylene Plant uses Sclairtech Technology licensed by DuPont (Novachem) of Canada. Ethylene is the raw material for PE plant. The Swing-Plant was built by Kobe Steel of Japan and is capable of producing both High and Linear Low Density categories of Poly Ethylene. The capacity of the plant is 360 KT per annum.
The technology uses two different catalyst systems to tailor-make grades. Based on the use of different catalyst, the plant can go from High to Linear Low Density PE. The unique feature of this process is the ability to swing from High to Linear Low and vice versa in short spans of time.

Poly Propylene Plant is based on the Basell (Montell) Spheripol Technology, which is the leading PP technology in the world. The plant was constructed by Technimont, an Italian company that has built a number of Basell plants worldwide. Propylene and PRF are the raw materials for PP plant which is designed to produce up to 120 KT per annum. The plant can produce homo-polymers, random-polymers as well as co-polymers that are used in wide range of applications, from woven sacks to household goods.
