As part of the expansion project, BPCL would be setting up a Petrochemical Fluid Catalytic Cracker (PFCC) which would generate 500 TMTPA of Propylene, thereby, providing BPCL a launching pad for diversification into Petrochemicals.

The petrochemical project would be set up in the JV mode at an additional cost or Rs 4.000-6.000 Crores adjacent to the Kochi Refinery and is slated for completion in the next four years dovetailed with the refinery expansion project.
