Project Experience Overview

Modularization Optimization

Engineering Capabilities

Vista’s engineering expertise extends across diverse markets and is of great value to the petrochemical industry. As a fully integrated engineering firm with decades-long experience in projects of all scale and scope, Vista understands petrochemical processing and has all the prerequisites required to engineer the utilities needed in large-scale petrochemical processing plants.

Ethylene Crackers

Ethane cracker plants turn ethane extracted from natural gas into ethylene. Ethylene is the cornerstone of the plastics industry and is at the core of various products.

Propane Dehydrogenation Plants

These plants are responsible for producing propylene from propane. Polypropylene is an essential component of major automotive and textile industries.

Polyolefin Plants

Polyolefin plants polymerize propylene and ethylene monomers. These are used across various industries, including plastics.

Upgrades and Retrofits

Vista’s experience with brownfield facility engineering is highly applicable to the petrochemical processing market. Our fit-for-purpose designs and cost-effective engineering solutions are of particular benefit to petrochemical plants.

Market Overview

The petrochemicals industry is known for the production and trade of a remarkable range of consumer and industrial products. Petrochemicals are at the core of multiple industries, including packaging, textiles, cosmetics, toiletries, and electronics and are also crucial to the global energy grid. Petrochemicals are derived from fossil fuels, such as crude oil and natural gas. Coal and biomass are other notable sources of petrochemicals.

The primary classes of petrochemicals are:
  • Olefins (ethylene, propylene, and butadiene)
  • Aromatics (benzene, toluene, and xylenes)
These form the basis of several useful products that include:
  • Synthetic rubber
  • Plastics
  • Adhesives
  • Detergents
  • Tires
They also produce a group of chemicals called petrochemical intermediates, which are more complex versions of their primary counterparts. These derivatives are further used in the manufacturing of a variety of products. A typical example is ethylene glycol, which is used in polyester textile fibres and in a variety of applications in the oil and gas industry. The rising demand for petrochemicals and their common use in people’s lives has led to an increase in the need for cost-effective production facilities.
