Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) along with Engineers India Limited (EIL) as the PMC contractor is planning to install a Polypropylene (PP) of 4.5 MMTPA capacity at Mumbai refinery, Maharashtra. W R Grace has been selected as the technology licensor for Polypropylene (PP) unit offering UNIPOL technology. Front End Engineering Design (FEED) work is completed by the licensor. Engineers India Limited (EIL) is selected as the EPC contractor. EIA report was prepared by Engineers India Limited (EIL) in which Environment Clearance (EC) committee had found some uncertainties. So they asked the project proponent to do some changes but BPCL was unable to get the clarifications readied on time. After which, the committee delisted the project from the grant of EC. Now, BPCL has to re-apply for EC. The EIA consultant and the report will remain the same. The privatization of BPCL has now resulted in a delay in the grant of capital approval. Due to a delay in the project the start and commissioning date has been extended. Project activities are expected to be resume by Q2:2021. Till then the project is on hold. Equipment required: reactors, pump/compressor, heater, columns/vessels, valves/nozzles, air blower, cooling tower, polypropylene bullets, fire water tanks.

RFQs are expected in Q2:2021.
