Refinery & Petrochemical Products
Petrochemicals may be considered the forte of IDS. Being associated with most of the Naphtha/Gas crackers & Aromatic complexes running in the country. IDS today is a force to reckon. Having involved in the work sight from site selection to business research, demand supply balance, studies, product mix selection, pricing & price projections, product-identification, logistics studies etc, IDS can easily provide strategic consulting to the clients. The range of products studied includes a number of streams such as:
- Commodity Polymers
- Performance polymers
- Fibre Value Chain
- Synthetic Fibres
- Solvents etc.
In mind, therefore, even the basic purpose petrochemicals of constructing a refinery are such on west coast refinery. Changing with time.
The refining industry is undergoing critical restructuring at present. Firstly the configurations are continuously changing due to even stringent environmental regulations and stress on cleaner fuels. The refineries are now changing from middle distillate maximization to light distillate maximization also being a primary feed provider, Refineries are forward integrating with high-value petrochemicals to maximize bottom lines via utilizing last available useful molecule to a value-added product.
Therefore, more & more Refinery – petrochemical integration is being planned on well as implemented in fact, at present, even refineries are being planned to keep worlds one of the most integrated complexes, others, joining the club are IOCL, BPCL (Kochi, Mumbai), HMEL (Panipat, Koyali, Paradeep), etc.
