Dallas/USA — As part of the front-end loading (Fel 2) phase, the engineering services provider will evaluate operability, maintainability, layout, operations and maintenance (O&M) guidelines; provide O&M input for the hazard and operability study (Hazop); and define the size, required capabilities and cost of the O&M workforce.

Encina's new processing plant will create BTX with high value aromatic hydrocarbons containing benzene, toluene and xylene. Also known as hydrogenated pyrolysis gasoline or pygas, these aromatics are extracted for further processing. When commissioned in the summer of 2020, this petrochemical plant will feature a scalable design of 200 to 400 total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) and produce approximately 50,000 to 100,000 tons of BTX per year.
