Numaligarh commissions naphtha splitter

Numaligarh Refinery Ltd. (NRL), a subsidiary of Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd., has commissioned a naphtha splitter unit at its 3 million tonne/year (tpy) refinery in the Golaghat district of Assam in far-northeastern India.

The unit, which cost 87 crore rupees and was funded entirely from internal sources, began operating on Nov. 18, according to a release from NRL.

The naphtha splitter—plans for which NRL first announced last year (OGJ Online, Sept. 21, 2012)—will supply 160,000 tpy of petrochemical-grade naphtha to the Assam Gas Cracker Project, which will be operated by Brahmaputra Cracker & Polymer Ltd. at Lepetkata in the Dibrugarh district.
