Starting Date: The Olefin Plant has been officially put in to operation on May 2005 and started its production.

Capacity: This Plant is designed to produce 520,000 tons of ethylene gas and 154,000 tons of propylene liquid annually.

Feedstock: the feedstock of this Plant include: LPG, Raffinate 2, light ends, feedstock Raffinate 1, Ethane, C3 PLUS, and some other minor feedstock.

Feedstock Supply Source: The feedstock of this Plant is supplied from different areas; LPG, Raffinate 2 and light end are received from Bu Ali Sina Petrochemical Company. Raffinate 1 and Ethane Feedstocks are taken from Bandar Imam Petrochemical Company, C3 PLUS is received from Marun Petrochemical Company and some other minor feedstock are from other places.

Operating Process of the Olefin Plant: After entering the feeds to the plant, a steam thermal cracking process is performed on them, and then the separation Processes are carried out. Since the Olefin plant feedstocks are composed of liquids and gases, the type of process is combinational. Part of the feedstocks are liquids and the others are gaseous. There are 7 furnaces in the Olefin Plant, 5 furnaces for liquid feeds and 2 furnaces for gaseous feeds that only contain ethane. 2 furnaces of these 5 liquid furnaces can also have ethane feed.

Products: The main products of this Plant are ethylene and then propylene. Other products include: pyrolysis gasoline, PFO (pyrolysis fuel oil), C4 CUT, and finally hydrogen.
