Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited.

(BCPL)

has set up a Petrochemical Complex at Lepetkata. The complex is spread over 3000 Bighas of land at Lepetkata, and is situated at approximately 15 Kilometres away from the Tea City Dibrugarh, Assam. M/s Engineers India Limited (EIL) was the Engineering and Project Management Consultant for this prestigious project. The plant came as a part of the historic Assam Accord signed on 15th August, 1985 with the motive of overall socio-economic development of the region. It was approved by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) on 18th April, 2006.

GAIL (India) Limited is the main promoter having 70% of equity participation and the rest 30% is equally shared by Oil India Ltd (OIL), Numaligarh Refinery Limited (NRL) and Government of Assam.

The plant was successfully commissioned on 2nd January 2016 and Hon’ble Prime Minister, Narendra Modi dedicated BCPL Petrochemical Complex to the Nation on 5th Feb’2016.

BCPL comprises of four work stations i.e. GDU Duliajan where Feed Natural Gas is received from M/s. Oil India Limited, Railway Siding where Naphtha received from M/s. NRL is unloaded, Lakwa GSU Cum C2+ Hydro Carbon Recovery Unit where Feed Natural Gas supplied by M/s. ONGC is processed and The Main Petrochemical Complex at Lepetkata, Dibrugarh where Polymers are being produced after processing the feed stocks.

Gas Dehydration and Compressor at Duliajan and Natural Gas Sweetening Unit Cum C2+ Recovery Section at Lakwa are approx. 48 Kms away from Lepetkata Main complex.

The principal end products of the complex are High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) totalling 2, 20,000 Tonnes per Annum (TPA) and 60,000 TPA of Poly-Propylene (PP). The other products include Hydrogenated Pyrolysis Gasoline and Pyrolysis Fuel Oil.
