A year after the PetroFCC Project, the Refinery Division of Petron Corporation invested in a benzene, toluene and xylene (BTX) Project. The BTX Project involves both the revamp of existing process units as well as the addition of a new unit. The EPRMP scope essentially covered updating the data provided for the PetroFCC EPRMP. Since the ECC issued for the PetroFCC required the conduct of a full Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) of the existing refinery, as well as future projects, Petron commissioned a foreign entity to undertake the QRA. Preliminary results from the QRA were included in the EPRMP report prepared by Apercu. The ECC was acquired in July 2007.
