The overhaul, which is expected to last 55 days, involves major
actions such as increasing the unit's capacity by re-tubing the furnaces and
their header lines, reviving the catalyst of the reactors, repairing the flares
with new methods and extensive repairs on the feed and product lines.
The main feed of Bandar Imam Petrochemical's aromatic unit is naphtha
sent from Abadan Refinery and the products of this unit are benzene, mixture of
xylenes, raffinate and liquid gas.
