Nuberg EPC wins IOCL’s Propylene Purification Package with Skid Mounted Technology Deployment

New Delhi, 30 September 2023: Nuberg EPC, the global engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company, has been awarded the PPP contract by Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. (IOCL) for the design, engineering, manufacturing, supply and commissioning of a Propylene Purification Package at IOCL Panipat Refinery, Haryana, India. The project is part of IOCL’s expansion plan to increase the refinery capacity from 15 MMTPA to 25 MMTPA.

The project is expected to be completed in 18 months (one and a half years). This is Nuberg EPC’s first project in the propylene purification segment and demonstrates its capability to execute complex and challenging projects in the oil and gas sector.

It’s the first Propylene Purification Package that will be skid mounted / modular in nature to facilitate easy installation and operation. Nuberg EPC will use regenerative and sacrificial adsorbent technology to purify propylene from the refinery off-gas stream. The purified propylene will be used as a feedstock for producing polymers, which are widely used in various industries such as packaging, textiles, automotive, etc.

This is the fourth project that Nuberg EPC is executing for IOCL in India, demonstrating its strong partnership and expertise in the oil and gas sector. Nuberg EPC is also involved in setting up India’s first hydrogen fuel dispensing station, a bio-ethanol plant, and a sulfur recovery unit (SRU) for IOCL at various locations. These projects are part of IOCL’s vision to diversify its product portfolio and adopt cleaner and greener fuels. Nuberg EPC is committed to delivering these projects with high standards of quality, safety, and efficiency.

The scope of work for Nuberg EPC includes the design, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, inspection, testing, supply and supervision of erection, commissioning and performance guarantee testing of the Propylene Purification Package.
