Remarks New Alkylation/ Acid Plant- The new 8,700 BPD Alkylation Unit replaces the existing BPD Alkylation Unit, and is of sufficient capacity to handle the increased feedstock generated by the upgraded FCCU. The Alkylate product is a premium high-octane, environmentally friendly gasoline-blending component, which will add to the pool of high-octane gasoline, helping to maintain an increased refinery product market share and eliminate an earlier need to construct bigger storage and shipping facilities for LPG.

The existing 60 TPD Acid Plant is to be replaced by a 215 Tonnes Per Day Unit which will be required to support the operations of the new Alkylation unit and provide for sales to the local market.
