South Asia's largest integrated megapetrochemicals complex being set up by ONGC Petro Additions Limited (Opal) in port city of Dahej in Gujarat is in the advance stages of commissioning and is expected to go on-stream in 2016.
 
The $4.5 billion mega project is being set up as a part of the Petroleum, Chemicals and Petrochemical Investment Region (PCPIR), first of its kind in India.
 
Commissioning activities are progressing at the project site, with the commencement of furnace refractory dry out of its Dual Feed Cracker Unit (DFCU), one of the key units of this megapetrochemical project. This activity marked readiness of ultra-modern cracking furnaces licensed and constructed by Linde group of Germany.
 
Opal is promoted by Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) and co-promoted by GAIL (India) Limited and Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation (GSPC).
 
The megapetrochemicals complex mothers a DFCU with a capacity to produce 1100 KTPA ethylene, 400 KTPA propylene along with polymerisation units and various associated units consisting of pyrolysis gasoline hydrogenation unit, butadiene and benzene extraction units. The polymer plants of Opal has 2X360 KTPA of LLDPE/HDPE swing unit, 1X340 KTPA of dedicated HDPE and 1x340 KTPA of PP.
 
Recently, Opal announced that naphtha, the main feedstock for DFCU, has arrived at GCPTCL port Dahej for onward transmission to Opal's production facility through pipeline. Opal has also procured propylene, which was transported to the complex through road tankers. (RKS)
