Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Jan 4 (ANI): L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) has bagged an over Rs 7,000 crore project to set up a dual-feed cracker unit in Rajasthan.
The mega project is from HPCL Rajasthan Refinery Ltd, a joint venture between Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL) and the state government of Rajasthan.
L&T said the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning contract is for setting up a dual-feed cracker unit (DFCU) for Rajasthan refinery project at Barmer.
"The DFCU is the biggest EPCC contract awarded in the country to date in the refinery and petrochemical sector," said the company.
The DFCU is used to convert refinery naphtha and off-gases to produce polymer grade ethylene and propylene by the process of thermal cracking.
