The plant will produce 750,000 TPA Para-Xylene, 100,000 TPA Ortho-Xylene and 430,000 TPA Benzene as main product. Also following By-Products are produced in the plant:

  • Heavy ends: 1,980,000  TPA
  • Light ends: 680,000  TPA
  • Raffinate: 379,000  TPA
  • Heavy Aromatics: 16,000  TPA
  • LPG: 76,000  TPA
  • C5:  47,000  TPA

The plant feed stock is 270,000 TPA pyrolysis gasoline from the 10th Olefin Plant and 4,200,000 TPA stabilized gas condensate from Phase 2 and 3 of South Pars Plants.

The plant consist of Pyrolysis Gasoline Hydrogenation, Naphta Prefractionation, Naphta Hydro-treating, Naphta Aromizing, BT Extraction, Octafining and Eluxyl all IFP (Axen’s) Technology.

BTX separation unit utilizes Uhde technology and Trans Alkylation is licensed by Toray.
