The engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract is for setting up a Dual Feed Cracker Unit (DFCU), EPCC-07 Package (capacity: 890 000 tpy) and a Petrochemical Fluidized Catalytic Cracking (PFCC) including Propylene Recovery Unit, EPCC-03 Package (capacity: 2.9 million tpy) for the Rajasthan Refinery Project in Barmer, Rajasthan, India. Both units are licensed by TechnipFMC.
The DFCU is used to convert Refinery Naphtha and Offgases to produce polymer grade Ethylene and Propylene by the process of thermal cracking. The Ethylene and Propylene is used as feed stock for downstream Polyethylene Unit and Polypropylene Unit. The process also produces by-products like Butadiene, Benzene, Toluene and Gasoline.
The PFCC will convert the heavy hydrocarbons from the Vacuum Distillation Unit to produce more valuable gasoline, diesel, propylene and lighter products by the process of catalytic cracking.
Subramanian Sarma, Whole-time Director & Sr. EVP (Energy), Larsen & Toubro Limited and CEO & MD, LTHE said: “We are very delighted to be part of this mega development project in Rajasthan and I would like to thank HRRL and HPCL for having trust in our capabilities to deliver such complex process plants with high standards of HSE and Quality.”
