ONGC Petro additions Limited (OPaL), a multibillion joint venture company was incorporated in 2006. OPaL is promoted by Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) and co-promoted by GAIL and GSPC.
OPaL has set up a grass root mega Petrochemical complex at Dahej, Gujarat in PCPIR/SEZ (Petroleum, Chemicals and Petrochemicals Investment Region/Special Economic Zone). The complex's main Dual Feed Cracker Unit has the capacity to produce 1100 KTPA Ethylene, 400 KTPA Propylene and the Associated Units consists of Pyrolysis Gasoline Hydrogenation Unit, Butadiene Extraction Unit and Benzene Extraction Unit. The Polymer plants of OPaL has 2X360 KTPA of LLDPE/HDPE Swing unit, 1X340 KTPA of Dedicated HDPE and 1x340 KTPA of PP. The project commenced its production after the inauguration by Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in March 2017.
The mega petrochemical complex is tactically located in the port-city of Dahej, Gujarat giving it a competitive edge of connectivity to domestic as well as overseas market. Equipped with adequate indigenous feedstock supplies, world-class technologies, talented human resources, and above all, easy access to the growing domestic & international market, OPaL is powering ahead in the fast-evolving petrochemical landscape.
The demand for polymers in India is huge and is expected to further rise with the growth in GDP. India will continue to be in deficit of Polyethylene in the foreseeable future. Moreover, this also works as a perfect downstream integration for ONGC - the key promoter who supply the required feedstock Naphtha from its Hazira, Uran and Dahej facilities, which is essential to run the plant in full capacity.
Apart from the home turf, being in SEZ, OPaL markets substantial part of its produce in the international market and has spread its polymer footprint across the globe with its world-class products and services. To achieve this, OPaL makes effective use of technologies, while being sensitive towards the environment at all times. Using the state-of-art technologies from the finest and most renowned companies, OPaL facility is considered to be among the best in the world
Driven by innovation, OPaL intend to build a world class petrochemical enterprise unlocking potential of its people and offer differentiated products and services.
