The major projects presently being undertaken
1. Marketing Terminal at Devongonthi, Bangalore
Marketing Terminal at Devangonthi, Bengaluru, is being constructed to cater bussiness primarily in state of Karnataka. The terminal would receive finished petroleum products (MS, HSD and ATF) through the existing PMHB pipeline from MRPL. The supplies of petroleum products to the retail outlets / customer / aviation stations would be met through road tankers. M/s. Nauvata Engineering Private Limited is the Consultant for the project. LSTK tender for Tankages and associated civil, mechanical, piping, electrical, instrumentation and fire-fighting is placed on M/s. Vishal Structurals Private Limited and for Civil and Structural works on M/s. SRR Projects Private Limited. Construction activities have commenced and the Terminal is scheduled to be completed by third quarter of FY 2023-24.
2. 2G Ethanol
MRPL has been informed by MoPNG to set up a 2G Ethanol Project in the state of Karnataka. Land for the same has been allotted by the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) at Harihara, Davanagere. Technology for the project has been selected and Detailed Feasibility Report has been prepared. MRPL has applied for the Viability Gap funding from GoI and Environmental clearance for the Project is awaited
3. CCR-1 Revamp
CCR-1 converts heavy naphtha feedstock into high octane reformate for gasoline blending and produces hydrogen for hydro-treating / hydrocracking. Revamp of Regenerator section of CCR-1 is being carried out to increase Regenerator Coke burn capacity thereby resulting in overall capacity increase to 80 m3/hr (from current 75 m3/hr). M/s. Triune Energy Services Pvt. Ltd. is the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management Consultant for the project. Major ordering is completed and equipment deliveries to site have commenced. Mechanical Completion of the project is scheduled in first quarter of FY 2023-24.
4. PFCC Flue Gas Wet Scrubber System
Petrochemical Fluidized Catalytic Cracking (PFCC) unit processes unconverted oil from Hydrocracker units, straight run low sulphur vacuum gas oil and hydro treated heavy coker gas oil and converts into value added products such as propylene, LPG and gasoline. During this process, carbon is deposited on the catalyst which reduces the ability of the catalyst to aid the cracking process. The carbon is then burnt off and the catalyst is regenerated. The regeneration process produces flue gas which passes through a system of cyclones and separators to remove catalyst fines. The project is conceived to reduce SPM limit in flue gas of PFCC as pollution control measure. M/s. Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions (India) Private Ltd. is the Project Management Consultant and M/s. Kalpataru Power Transmission Limited is the LSTK contractor for the project. Mechanical Completion of the project is scheduled in second quarter of FY 2023-24.
5. PFCC LPG + Propylene Amine Scrubber
While processing feed with high Sulphur content in Petrochemical Fluidized Catalytic Cracking (PFCC), higher Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is expected in LPG and Propylene stream. Current system to meet H2S in LPG and Propylene product is caustic wash. Amine Scrubber System reduces dependency on caustic wash to a large extent. The system removes H2S in the LPG and Propylene streams and minimizes the spent caustic generation in existing Caustic Treatment System. M/s. Triune Energy Services Pvt. Ltd. is the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management Consultant for the project. Mechanical Completion of the project is scheduled in second quarter of FY 2023-24.
6. New Bitumen Blowing Train as a part of extension of existing Bitumen Blowing Unit
The project envisages setting up of additional Bitumen Blowing Train with a capacity of 144 KTPA as a part of extension of existing Bitumen Blowing Unit to cater to the simultaneous demand of VG-30 and VG-40 grades of bitumen to leverage market demand. M/s. Engineers India Limited is the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management Consultant for the project. Mechanical Completion of the project is scheduled in third quarter of FY 2023-24.
7. Enhancement of Grid Connectivity and Refinery System Upgradation
The project consists of implementation of
a. Grid Connectivity at 220KV level to Refinery complex
b. Grid connectivity at 110/33KV to Aromatics complex
c. Refinery Electrical System upgradation
d. Refinery Steam and Cooling Water system upgradation / modifications The project is scheduled to be completed by March 2025.
