ONGC subsidiary - Mangalore Refinery & Petrochemicals Ltd said it achieved feed-cut in to Petrochemical Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Unit (PFCCU), one of the major secondary process units in its Phase III expansion plan.

The PFCCU, with a capacity production of 2.2 MMTPA, is the second such unit in the country and about 20% of its capacity can produce products like polymer grade propylene, apart from almost 25% of its capacity, which can produce LPG.

MRPL licensed the technology from Technip Stone & Webster International Inc. and the project was executed by Engineers India Ltd.

Mr Vijay Joshi, Director (Refinery) at MRPL said, “Currently the unit is under stabilization and the products produced from the unit like LPG, Naphtha, Light Cycle Oil, etc have been routed to respective destinations.”

MRPL said that with the commissioning of PFCCU, it has achieved a major milestone.

In April 2014, MRPL had commissioned the 3.00 MMTPA Delayed Coker Unit (DCU) , another major secondary processing facility of the Phase-III that converts the Short residue(bottoms) which is a low value product into high value products like Gasoil, Naphtha and LPG.

MRPL added that with Phase III becoming fully operational, its top line and bottom line is expected to improve significantly.
