According to market sources, state-owned Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) will start up a new MEG plant at its Paradip refinery in 2019. The plant is expected to have a production capacity of around 325,000 tons/year. The plant will reportedly use 220,000 tons/year of ethylene as feedstock, which will be provided by the complex’s other production units.

In addition, the company is reportedly conducting a feasibility study for producing paraxylene and PTA at the complex, with the units under consideration both carrying projected capacities of 1.2 million tons/year. The project for PX and PTA production is expected to cost around $1.5 billion and would be launched around 2020 if the company ultimately decides to make the investment.

Meanwhile, Indian Oil is currently building a PP plant at the same complex with a production capacity of 700,000 tons/year. Construction of the plant is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2017.
