Indian Oil Corporation selects Technip Energies for a new PTA plant

Technip Energies has been awarded a large Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning contract by Indian Oil Corporation Limited for its Para Xylene and Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) complex project at Paradip, Orissa, on the East Coast of India

This EPCC contract covers the delivery of a new 1.2 MMTPA(2) PTA plant and associated facilities. PTA is a major raw material used to manufacture polyester fibers, PET bottles and polyester film used in packaging applications.

Marco Villa, Chief Operating Officer of Technip Energies commented: “We are pleased to be awarded another prestigious contract by Indian Oil Corporation Limited. We look forward to starting this significant project which illustrates our commitment to India – a core market for us. It also significantly consolidates our leading position for executing complex petrochemical projects.”

Paradip Refinery is the most-modern refinery in India. Its products meet the energy demands of the domestic market and are partly exported. With the aim to create a value chain, Paradip Refinery has ventured into petrochemicals with the production of Polypropylene (PP), Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG), and is now going into Para Xylene (PX) and Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) production. The availability of PTA at Paradip will provide a boost to polyester manufacturing facilities in the vicinity.

Technip Energies has a strong footprint in India and local presence in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Dahej.
