ADNOC Refining, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has reached full production of polymer-grade propylene from its newly commissioned Propane Dehydrogenation (PDH) unit, located in the Ruwais integrated refining and petrochemical hub. Ruwais is located west of Abu Dhabi city in the Al Gharbia region of Abu Dhabi Emirate.

The PDH unit processes propane from two major sources, ADNOC Gas Processing and Ruwais Refinery West, to produce half a million tons per year of polymer-grade propylene. The standalone unit is part of the recently commissioned Carbon Black and Delayed Coker project.

“The PDH unit is a key element of ADNOC Refining’s expansion strategy to help create maximum value for ADNOC’s downstream businesses. It also underlines our intent to continue to expand Ruwais to become the world’s largest integrated refining and petrochemical complex, operating to world-class standards,” Jasem Al Sayegh, CEO of ADNOC Refining, said in a press statement.

“The expansion in propylene production will be over half a million tons per year, adding value to our refining operations by integrating with downstream processing units. It will also help enable our partner company, Borouge, to meet the increasing global demand for specialist polymer products, particularly from the Asia-Pacific region,” Al Sayegh added.

PDH is used to produce polymer-grade propylene from propane independent of a steam cracker, or fluid catalytic cracking unit. It provides a dedicated and reliable source of propylene to meet the growing market demand for propylene and gives more control over propylene feedstock costs. (RKS)
