Pakistan mulls building naphtha cracker

According to media reports, Pakistan is considering constructing its first naphtha cracker complex, which will pyrolyze naphtha to produce basic petrochemical feedstock.

Currently, Pakistan has to import all its petrochemical feedstock from international markets as it does not have a naphtha cracker complex. Thus, the country’s projected naphtha cracker complex is expected to boost economic progress, enabling the country to be less dependent on imports, reports indicated.

In line with the initial plan, Pakistan Chemical Manufacturing Association (PCMA) has been asked to prepare a feasibility report and a business plan in cooperation with market experts and technologists to put the project into practice.
