India’s Largest Petrochemical Complex comes On-stream in Dahej, Gujarat

Posted on : 13 Jul, 2017


India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently inaugurated OPaL’s (ONGC Petro additions Ltd) Rs 30,000-crore petrochemical complex in Special Economic Zone under Petroleum, Chemical and Petrochemical Investment Region (PCPIR) at Dahej, Gujarat. 

The new complex is said to be India’s largest petchem complex with a total production capacity of 14 lakh metric tonnes of polymers and 5 lakh metric tonnes of chemicals. OPaL aims to gain a market share of 13 percent in the polymer sector by 2018.

The complex will produce a variety of polymers including - linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP) as well as chemicals such as benzene, butadiene, and pyrolysis gasoline. The complex is expected to use ONGC’s captive feed of C2+ streams (ie, ethane, propane and butane) from C2-C3 extraction plant, and naphtha from Hazira & Uran to produce polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

The new complex is well positioned to boost India’s downstream plastic processing industries, and generate further investment of Rs 40,000 crore. 

The petchem facility also aims to increase India’s polymer consumption which today stands at an average of 10 kg per capita, compared to a world average of 32 kg. Opal can encourage polymer consumption in the country and its products – especially in key sectors like infrastructure, housing, packaging, irrigation, automotive and healthcare.

The increased use of polymers is also expected to reduce burden on traditional materials like wood, paper, metal – thus helping in conservation of natural resources like water and energy.

More on Asian petrochemical markets will be discussed at 23rd Asia Petrochemical Summit (APS) on 12-13 September, 2017 in Singapore.
