Refinery and Aromatics
A 350,000 barrel per day Petrochemical Refinery will convert Libyan crude to premium transportation fuels and petrochemical intermediates.
Integrated with the refinery is an Aromatics plant which will produce paraxylene and benzene, which can be exported and sold in Phase I; it can then be converted to higher value derivatives in later phases.
Refinery, Aromatics, and Additional Ethylene Cracker
In Phase II, a 1,200 KTA Ethylene Cracker is integrated with the Phase I Refinery and Aromatics Plant.
Derivative units such as Bimodal Polyethylene, Ethylene Glycol, Styrene and Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) will utilize the olefins produced in the cracker. At the end of Phase II, crude feed will be converted to a diversified mix of products.
Mixed Feed Steam Cracker and
Additional Petrochemical Derivatives
Additional derivative units such as PTA/PET, Cyclohexane, and Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) will utilize the benzene production and the majority of the paraxylene.
Phase III will also include a Mixed Feed Steam Cracker which produces additional olefins to be used in derivative units such as LDPE, HDPE, LLDPE, and copolymer polypropylene.
Expansions of existing LNG and chemical plants that are within the existing facilities will be an important part of the Master Plan. In addition, a new NGL facility, built on the existing site, will provide gas and condensate feedstock and leverages the proximity to the existing gas facilities.
