India IOC board approves cracker, polymer project
Indian Oil Corp Ltd (IOC) said
its board has approved a planned cracker and downstream polymer
project in India.
In a brief statement to the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), the company said that the project would require an estimated investment of about Rs63bn ($1.38bn/Euro1.14bn).
It did not give the a planned capacity in its statement, although ACW know that the IOC was planning an 800 000 tonne/year cracker along with a 600 000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) facility.
The start-up date had been set for 2007. The site has not been announced yet.
India's Chennai Petroleum to build 165,000+ mt/yr PP plant
India's refining major Chennai Petroleum Corp (CPC) is planning to set up a polypropylene plant at its 950,000-mt/year petroleum refinery complex in the southern Tamil Nadu state city of Chennai. The plant capacity is a planned 165,000 mt/yr although company chairman, M Ramachandran told Platts it was mulling building the plant with larger capacity.
Indian Oil Corp owns the majority stake in CPC, whose polypropylene project is in line with IOC's strategy to foray into petrochemicals. In mid-August, IOC commissioned a 120,000-mt/yr linear alkyl benzene plant at its 13.70-mil mt/year Koyali petroleum refinery in western Gujarat. IOC is also building a 350,000-mt/year paraxylene and 553,000- mt/year purified terephthalic acid production plants at Paniat in northwestern Haryana state. The company has also decided to set up an 800,000-mt/yr naphtha cracker facility in northwestern Haryana state.

The Telegraph, New Delhi, Mar 11, 2004
Iran petrochem invite buoys
Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) is eyeing a stake in a huge petrochemical plant in Iran and the due diligence exercise for the project has already begun.
A senior IOC official told The Telegraph that National Petrochemical Company (NPC) of Iran has offered a stake in an ongoing olefin project located in Bandar Imam. “IOC is interested in picking up a decent stake that would allow board-level participation in the Iranian company,” he added.
The olefin plant forms a part of the petrochemicals hub at the Iranian port town that uses the country’s vast natural gas resources as feedstock. An IOC team visited Iran recently to get a first-hand feel of the ground realities.
A four-member team, comprising two representatives each of IOC and NPC, has been already at work to identify various areas for co-operation between the two companies. This project has emerged as the first concrete proposal.
IOC is also of the view that investing in the petrochemicals sector in Iran is a better business proposition than merely importing liquefied natural gas (LNG) from that country.
The investment proposal for Iran forms part of the IOC vision to emerge as a leading player in petrochemicals in South East Asia by 2010-11. Having lost Indian Petrochemical Corporation (IPCL) to Reliance in the divestment sweepstakes, IOC has drawn up ambitious plans of expanding its own domestic capacities as well. It has started work on its Rs 5,000-crore petrochemicals plant at the Panipat refinery. The Rs 1,200-crore project at the Koyali refinery in Gujarat is also proceeding on schedule.
Investment in petrochemicals business by processing the naphtha produced at its refineries is the logical step to move up the value chain. These projects will enable the company to absorb the domestic naphtha, which is becoming surplus with increasing oil refining capacities.
With greater emphasis on natural gas in the economy, it is likely that fertiliser and power units, which currently consume naphtha, could switch to using gas instead as it is cheaper. This would render even more naphtha surplus.
Since Reliance has emerged as a near-monopoly in the petrochemicals sector, IOC is keen to fill the void and capture a neat chunk of the market. It had drawn up its mega Rs 6,000-crore plan to develop Haldia after taking over Haldia Petrochem (HPL). However, as the HPL management went for the investment proposed by Gail, the plan failed.

Dr Reddy's to buy BASF drug contract manufact unit
インドDr. Reddy’s Laboratories社は2008年4月30日、独BASF社が米国ルイジアナ州に保有する委託製造事業部門および関連施設の買収に関する正式な契約を結んだと発表した。
Indian drugmaker Dr Reddy's Laboratories Ltd said on Wednesday it had agreed to acquire BASF's drug contract manufacturing business and a related facility in the United States for an undisclosed amount.
The Hyderabad-based company said the deal was likely to be completed by June, subject to regulatory approvals.
BASF's contract manufacturing business makes generic prescription and over-the-counter products for branded and generic companies in the United States, Dr Reddy's said in a statement.
The business had revenue of $43 million in 2007, it said.
"The acquisition ... will enable us to strengthen our supply chain for North America and provide a strong platform for pursuing additional growth opportunities," Satish Reddy, managing director of Dr Reddy's, said in the statement.
Dr. Reddy's社は1984年にインドの科学者Dr. Anji Reddyによって設立され、今最も急速に成長している企業。2006年度、同社はインドの製薬会社で第3位となり、収益は5億4,600万米ドルとなった。
* Dr. Reddy's Laboratoriesはジェネリック薬、バルク有効成分開発、創薬を専門とするインドの主要企業である
* Dr. Reddy'sは世界中に拠点をもち運営している
* Dr. Reddy'sのビジョンとミッション
As part of the agreement, approximately 150 employees will transfer from BASF to Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories. The 42-acre Shreveport facility currently manufactures and packages prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceutical products, liquids, tablets and creams for the North American market. BASF is divesting the site and related business in order to concentrate on core businesses in its Care Chemicals division, which include custom synthesis services, excipients and active ingredients for the pharmaceuticals industry.
“BASF’s contract manufacturing activity for finished pharmaceuticals is limited to North America and not linked to the technological growth areas of the company’s Pharma Ingredients and Services business. We want to continue to grow our excipients and custom synthesis operations to better serve the pharmaceutical industry in the future,” said Martin Widmann, Head of BASF’s Pharma Ingredients and Services global business unit. “We assessed a variety of strategic options, but ultimately concluded that a divestiture is the best scenario not only for BASF but also for the future of the Shreveport site and its employees.”

IndianOil has finalised a US$ 5.7 billion master plan on petrochemicals, predominantly utilising the streams available from its various refineries. As part of its forward integration strategy, IndianOil is co-locating petrochemical plants with its existing and proposed refineries. World-scale petrochemicals plants with state-of-the-art technology have been identified and are under various stages of implementation. In addition, IndianOil is also exploring the possibility of equity participation / acquisition of other projects in India and abroad. These ventures are estimated to have a capital investment requirement of about Rs. 25,0000 - Rs. 30,000 crore spread over the next eight years, to enable IndianOil quickly emerge as a leading petrochemicals player in the country.
Towards setting up of greenfield projects, IndianOil took the first step by commissioning a LAB plant at Gujarat Refinery in August 2004. IndianOil is also implementing an integrated PX/PTA project PX/PTA project at Panipat Refinery, to be commissioned in fiscal 2005. IndianOil is in an advanced stage of setting up a Naphtha Cracker and downstream polymer units at Panipat.
LAB (Linear Alkyl Benzene):
The year 2004-05 marked IndianOil's big-ticket entry into petrochemicals with the commissioning of the country's largest Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) plant at Gujarat Refinery in August 2004. It is also the largest grassroots single train Kerosene-to-LAB unit in the world, with an installed capacity of 120,000 million tonnes per annum (MTPA). Currently, two grades of LAB - high molecular weight and low molecular weight - are being produced. The quality of the LAB produced here has found wide acceptance in the domestic and overseas markets.
Built at a cost of Rs. 1,248 crore and commissioned in a record 24 months' time, the plant produces superior quality LAB for manufacturing environment-friendly biodegradable detergents, using state-of-the-art Detal technology from M/s UOP, USA. The key raw materials for the plant, catering to domestic as well as export market requirements meeting the latest and most stringent quality standards, are Kerosene and Benzene produced at Koyali Refinery.
PX/PTA (Paraxylene / Purified Terephthalic Acid):
The PX/PTA project marks IndianOil's major step towards forward integration in the hydrocarbon value chain by manufacturing Paraxylene (PX) from Naphtha and thereafter, converting it into Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA). Currently under implementation at Panipat Refinery in Haryana, the integrated Paraxylene/Purified Terephthallic Acid (PX/PTA) complex is being built at a cost of Rs. 5,104 crore.
The PTA Plant will be the single largest unit in India with a world-scale capacity of 553,000 MTPA, achieving economy of scale. The process package for the PTA plant was prepared by erstwhile M/s Dupont, UK (now M/s. Invista) and that of the Paraxylene Unit was prepared by M/s UOP, USA. M/s EIL and M/s Toyo Engineering have been selected as the Project Management Consultants (PMC) for executing the PTA and PX respectively.
The Paraxylene plant is designed to process 500,000 MTPA of heart-cut Naphtha to produce about 360,000 MTPA of PX. Naphtha will be sourced from IndianOil's Panipat and Mathura refineries, for which Naphtha splitter units are being set up at the respective refineries. The PTA unit will produce 553,000 MTPA of Purified Terephthalic Acid from Paraxylene. Technologically, the plant will be one of the most advanced in the country.
IndianOil has selected the latest and the most modern technology available in this field to achieve economy of scale in the plants scheduled for commissioning in 2006.
The Naphtha Cracker and downstream polymer units are being set up at Panipat at a cost of Rs. 6,300 crore. An MoU has been signed in June 2004 with the Government of Haryana, who are providing fiscal incentives and concessions for the project.
Planned to be completed by 2009, this project envisages setting up of a Naphtha Cracker based on captive utilisation of Naphtha from Panipat, Mathura and Koyali refineries of IndianOil. The Naphtha Cracker complex envisages other downstream polymer units utilising intermediates ethylene and propylene to be generated from the Cracker.
The Naphtha Cracker unit is designed to produce 800,000 tonnes per annum of ethylene and 600,000 tonnes per annum of Propylene, based on which other downstream polymer units are being designed to produce Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Polypropylene (PP) and the speciality chemical Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG). The capacities of the Naphtha Cracker and polymer units are kept at world-class level, with the products ranging from commodity to niche grades.

India's ONGC to break
ground on new petrochemical complex Friday
India's Oil and Natural Gas Corp Friday will launch construction of a 1-mil mt/year aromatics facility at Mangalore in southern Karnataka state.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will fly down to the site to lay a foundation stone to mark the occasion, a senior ONGC official said Thursday.
Commissioning of the plant is scheduled for 2010, the official said.
ONGC, in a tie-up with its subsidiary Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd, has formed a new company -- Mangalore SEZ -- to build the facility at the Mangalore Special Economic Zone, close to an oil refinery run by MRPL. MRPL is raising capacity at that refinery to 15-mil mt/year from a current 9.69-mil mt/year to provide naphtha for the petrochemical plant.
2006 The Times of India
ONGC plans mega petrochem unit
Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd.(ONGC)'s new petrochemicals complex -- which will produce petrochemical building blocks paraxylene and benzene -- is the first of its kind in the southern peninsula, removing the freight handicap of southern consumers.
The feedstock is the heavy naphtha generated in the MRPL refinery. The refinery already has two catalytic reformers and one more new reformer of similar capacity will be installed in the new complex.
Thus, around 1.6 million metric tonnes per annum (mmtpa) of heavy naphtha will be the feedstock to produce 0.95 mmtpa of paraxylene and around 0.15 mmtpa of benzene, the rest being LPG, gasoline pool feed and tail gas.
India gives green light for ONGC move into petrochemicals
Indian energy minister M S Srinivasan has given a greenlight from the government for state-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) to move ahead with plans to build petrochemicals units around the country, Press Trust of India said Monday. Srinivasan was quoted by the official news agency as saying ONGC would be allowed "to set up petrochemical complexes wherever they have refineries or have a natural gas source."
Earlier this month, ONGC's board of directors approved a plan for to build a 1.1 million mt/year petrochemical complex at Dahej. The cracker would produce ethylene, propylene and derivative products HDPE, LLDPE, PP and styrene butadiene rubber. The oil and gas producer also plans to add petrochemicals units to its 240,000 barrels/day Mangalore oil refinery.

Indian investigators in S Korea for PVC anti-dumping probe
Indian government officials arrived in South Korea this week to interview two of the country's leading PVC producers as part of an investigation into allegations of anti-dumping of Korean PVC in India, sources from these companies said Tuesday.
A number of PVC companies/suppliers in Taiwan, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and the US were alleged to have engaged in unfair trade practices.
ANTI-DUMPING DUTY UNLIKELY, SOURCES SAID
Some market sources said the anti-dumping investigation has become slower this year due to tightness of supply in India. Sources even said that some India PVC suppliers had to import from northeast Asian producers to meet rising domestic demand.

Dumping duty mooted on
Based on a petition filed by Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), the Designated Authority in the Commerce Ministry has recommended imposition of provisional anti-dumping duty on imported polypropylene (PP) from Oman, Saudi Arabia and Singapore.
With a combined capacity of over one million tonnes, Reliance figures among the top eight polypropylene producers in the world and the company holds a 70 per cent share of the domestic market and caters to three per cent of global consumption of PP.
Polypropylene, the most versatile polymer continues to show the highest growth rate in the country, as it finds comprehensive usage in woven-sacks for cement, sugarcane, fertilisers, films for packaging, various consumer items and wide variety of injection moulded items such as auto parts, appliances, furniture and house-ware.
In its preliminary probe conducted after the receipt of a written application from RIL on behalf of the domestic industry alleging dumping of polypropylene (i.e. homo polymers of propylene and copolymers of propylene and ethylene), the Authority said the other producer, Haldia Petrochemical Corporation, has supported the application.
The Authority held, after due deliberations on various parameters having a bearing on dumping and its consequent injury to domestic industry, that the product under probe has been exported to India from the subject countries below associated normal value.
As a result of which, the domestic industry has suffered material injury which is the result of the dumped imports from the subject countries. It said imports from subject countries have increased in absolute terms as well as in relation to total imports, total demand and domestic production in India.
Moreover, it held, market share of the domestic industry has come down over the period of probe from April 1, 2008 to end-December 2008, over and above the fiscal years of 2005-06 2006-07 and 2007-08, while the demand has increased. The prices of the domestic industry have been suppressed despite increase in demand and there is a marked dumping margin from each of the subject countries and also there is a significant underselling from each of the subject countries.
