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.
