Instamine invites you to learn more about ONGC Petro additions Ltd. (OPaL)!!

ONGC Petro additions Limited (OPaL) was incorporated in 2006. It is promoted by Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC, 49.4%) and co-promoted by GAIL India Ltd (49.2%) and Gujarat State Petroleum Corp. Ltd (GSPC, 1.4%).

OPaL has set up a grass root mega Petrochemical complex at Dahej, Gujarat in PCPIR/SEZ (Petroleum, Chemicals and Petrochemicals Investment Region/Special Economic Zone). The complex's main Dual Feed Cracker Unit has the capacity to produce 1100 KTPA Ethylene, and 400 KTPA Propylene and the Associated Units consist of a Pyrolysis Gasoline Hydrogenation Unit, Butadiene Extraction Unit, and Benzene Extraction Unit.

The mega petrochemical complex is tactically located in the port city of Dahej (in the Special economic zone - SEZ), Gujarat giving it a competitive edge of connectivity to domestic as well as overseas markets. OPAL is having its own testing and R&D lab which is known as the Product Application & Research Centre (PARC). This state-of-the-art technological support facility is accredited by NABL and has all kinds of equipment to test the material quality.

Under the leadership of Mr. Shubhash Kumar, Chairman & Mr. Avinash Kumar Verma, Managing director opal’s revenue in 2020 is around INR101,828million with a total comprehensive income of INR 20,917 million. Around 982 people are directly employed with the company

Chemicals



 

OPAL main chemical products are benzene, butadiene, CBFS and pygas. These chemicals are produced at various stage of steam cracking / high temperature cracking of liquid petroleum feedstock, naphtha and gas oils.

Benzene

Benzene, an organic chemical is a color less and flammable liquid with a sweet smell. The main sources of benzene are -- the steam cracking or catalytic reforming of liquid petroleum feedstock, and primarily naphtha, where benzene is recovered from the aromatics stream.

Benzene is mostly used as an additive to other chemicals. It is used to make styrene, which in turn is used to make plastics and polymers. Styrene is used in the manufacture of polystyrene and other styrenic products such as SBR latex and ABS. Cumene, for phenol production, and cyclohexane applications are the other significant end-uses of benzene.

Butadiene

Butadiene is used in the production of various types of polymer resins, synthetic rubbers, and chemical intermediates. Butadiene is found as a by-product in the steam cracking of naphtha and gas oil to make ethylene and propylene. It is extracted from the C4 cracker stream using extractive distillation.

Butadiene is mainly used in polymers and elastomers such as ABS, SBR and SB latex, and polybutadiene rubber.

CBFS

Carbon Black Feedstock is a mixture of C12 and higher components rich in naphthalene, methyl-indene, anthracene, fluorine and other poly-aromatic components. It originates from the high temperature cracking of petroleum fractions.

CBFS is used to produce Carbon Black, which is used in tyres and road paving, tyre reinforcements, black pigments (e.g. for road markings) and conductors. The stream also contains piperylene, which is used to produce copolymerization elastomers, petroleum resins, curing agents, pesticides, and perfumes.

Pygas

Pyrolysis gasoline. Pygas is a naphtha-range product with a high aromatics content used either for gasoline blending or as a feedstock for a BTX extraction unit. Pyrolysis gasoline is produced in an ethylene plant that processes naphtha, butane or gasoil.

OPALENE HDPE

  • Products: 14

High Density, (0.95-0.965 g/cm3) Polyethylene, has higher temperature resistance, stiffness, and superior water vapor barrier properties when compared to LLDPE. HDPE has a low degree of branching, hence stronger intermolecular forces and tensile strength. There are four major end-uses of HDPE. Molding applications (injection and blow) account for almost 50% of worldwide demand, while film and sheet applications represent 25%. HDPE is highly preferred as a sheathing material where it provides high resistance to water penetration. It is very hard, has low coefficient of friction, and is abrasion resistant. Hence, it is used in products and packaging such as milk jugs, detergent bottles, margarine tubs, garbage containers and water pipes.

OPALENE LLDPE

  • Products: 9

With a density range of 0.9150 - 0.925 g/cm3, LLDPE replaces its predecessor Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) in many applications. LLDPE is a blended form of LDPE, where the film has much more tensile strength, flexibility, superior impact and puncture resistance.

OPALENE PP

  • Products: 7

olypropylene (PP), also known as Polypropene, is a rigid and crystalline thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications. It is readily available, relatively inexpensive and offers an excellent combination of physical, chemical, mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties that are not found in any other thermoplastic. Though lower in impact strength than polyethylene, Polypropylene has superior working temperature and tensile strength.
