The Alfa Laval Packinox plate heat exchangers will be utilised in the production of mixed Xylene
at a new aromatics plant in the Chinese complex.
The $6.3 billion worth refinery, which was built by SOCAR in the Aliagha district near the Turkish city of Izmir, in the territory of the Petkim petrochemical complex, will produce 1.6 million tons of naphtha, 1.6 million tons of aviation fuel, 4.8 million tons of low-sulfur diesel fuel, 700,000 tons of petroleum coke, 420,000 tons of mixed xylene
and 160,000 tons of sulphur.
Fuel oil exports, in particular, soared by a record 80.7-percent last year, the DOE has emphasized, while overseas sale of petrochemical products such as propylene, mixed xylene
and benzene had also been higher.
The first JGSPC project worth P4.2 billion will be poured into a facility for the production of butadiene and raffinate, while the second one, worth P3 billion, will be allocated for the manufacture of benzene, toluene, mixed xylene
, C8+/C9+ Cut and non-aromatics.
Along with naphtha, the new refinery will produce diesel fuel with ultra-low sulfur to the amount of 5.95 million tons, aviation kerosene - 500,000 tons, reformate - 500,000 tons, petroleum coke - 630,000 tons, liquefied gas - 240,000 tons, mixed xylene
- 415,000 tons, olefin LPG - 75,000 tons and 145,000 tons of sulfur.
has started construction of its first ever aromatic plant in the country to produce petrochemicals like benzene, paraxylene and isomer-grade mixed xylene
along with its second refinery having a capacity of 120,000 barrels/day.
It also has an aromatics plant that can produce 150,000 tpa benzene, 22,800 tpa toluene and 220,000 tpa mixed xylene
that was commissioned in May 2009, with a proportion of output exported.
The following are the main units at the Bandar Imam complex, run by Bandar Imam Petrochemical Co., NPC's local subsidiary (capacities in '000 t/y): LPG 2,900 Ethylene dichloride 310 Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) 100 High-density polyethylene (HDPE) 60 Propylene 110 Polypropylene 50 Chlorine 230 Vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) 175 Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) 175 Caustic soda 260 Acrylonitrile 50 Hydrochloric acid 35 Benzene 351 Mixed xylene
144 Styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) 40 Gasoline 62
Around 1.6 million tons of naphtha, 1.6 million tons of aviation fuel, 4.8 million tons of low-sulfur diesel fuel, 700,000 tons of petroleum coke, 420,000 tons of mixed xylene
and 160,000 tons of sulfur will be produced in the Petkim petrochemical complex of the refinery.
It also produces petrochemical feedstock benzene, toluene, mixed xylene
and propylene, which are raw materials used in a wide variety of applications, including food packaging, rope, sacks, plastic parts, home appliance, automotive parts and reusable containers.
This shall be the first petrochemicals complex in Pakistan with an initial capacity of 17,100 bbls per day to produce petrochemical products such as Raffinate, C-9, Benzene, Mixed Xylene
, Para Xylene, and Ortho Xylene to meet the country's deficit requirements.
Tenders are invited for Supply Of Clay For Mixed Xylene
Unit, Qty-100Mt, For A Period Of One Year As Per Technical Specification And Tender.
