HPCL cracking unit on stream

NEW DELHI: Union Petroleum Minister S. Jaipal Reddy on Thursday inaugurated a Rs.900-crore unit at Hindustan Petroleum Corporation's Mumbai refinery which will make products like LPG.

The new fluidised catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) at HPCL's Mumbai refinery was implemented at a cost of Rs.900 crore, the company said in a statement here.

“With the commissioning of this project, HPCL Mumbai refinery will be able to produce high value distillate products such as LPG and petrol and this will contribute towards higher refinery margins,” the statement said.

The new FCC unit has incorporated a number of state-of-the-art features which facilitate a high severity and high conversion operation and upgradation of heavy low value streams of the refinery.

Facilities include an integrated flue gas scrubber, which will considerably bring down emissions. Besides, the design includes provision of catalyst cooler facilities which allow processing of heavy feedstock. — PTI
