The Naphtha Hydrotreater Reformer Expansion Project for ENOC (Emirates National Oil Company) in Jebel Ali was designed to upgrade naphtha to a sweet petrochemical naphtha and a 102 RON Reformate. The expansion included a new 70,000 bpsd LPG/Naphtha Hydrotreater, a 36,000 bpsd CCR Reformer, LPG fractionation plant, product treating and sulphur management.
