BP CHEMICALS (M) SDN. BHD 12 JAN – 12 JUN INDUSTRIAL TRAINING POLYTECHNIC KUCHING SARAWAK
INDUSTRIAL TRAINING OBJECTIVE The purpose of industrial training is to expose Polytechnic students to the world of work so that they can relate theoretical knowledge with application in industry. From the Industrial training Program, the students will also develop skills in work ethics, communication, practical and theory. Furthermore, this Industrial training Program will establish close relationship between the industry and Polytechnic. The objectives of the training are as follows:
To integrate theory with practice To introduce students to work culture and industrial practices To give opportunity to students to work with industrial practitioners To expose students to potential employers To acquaint the Polytechnic students with industry and its programs Implement Health Safety and Environment (HSE) practices at workplace. Practical ethical professional work culture. Acquire skills in communication, management and team-work.
INDIVIDUAL OBJECTIVE The following are my objectives for having this industrial training: Expose to the new working environment To gain knowledge and exposure on equipments use in chemical plant To learn the technical knowledge To practically apply theoretical knowledge learned To enhance my leadership To improve my soft skills
Overview of BPCM Located in the Gebeng Industrial Estate, 25 kilometers away from Kuantan town, on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, BP Chemicals Malaysia (BPCM) was established in this region to further strengthen BP's position as the world's largest Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) producer. PTA is the preferred raw material in textiles, video and audio films, soft drink bottles and engineering resins It is a wholly owned BP business unit. It operates a 600,000 metric ton PTA plant and this facility employs about 219 full-time employees and hundreds of internal and external contractors.
BPCM strives to be a world-class PTA supplier, committed to being a good corporate citizen by working towards its goal of no accidents, no harm to people, and no damage to the environment. To protect the environment, this PTA plant is equipped with advanced environmental protection facilities to ensure efficient waste treatment and minimal emissions. . Its community outreach program demonstrates its desire to have a measurable and sustainable positive impact on its surrounding communities
BPCM PRODUCT An aromatic acid Physically - White - Crystalline powder - Looks like powdered sugar Raw material; paraxylene (PX) - Colourless - Flammable liquid; sweet odour - Separated from a mixed xylene stream; from refining of petroleum
PROCESS OVERVIEW BPCM consist of two major sections which are Inside Battery Limit (ISBL) and Outside Battery Limit (OSBL). ISBL also divided into oxidation and purification unit for the production unit. OSBL is also divided into utility and waste water treatment. It is functioned to support the process of ISBL.

Cathodic protection pipeline and tank storage Cathodic protection effectively protects underground or submerged metallic structures through the use of a negative potential applied by an external source to the structure. Commonly, once the structure has been made sufficiently negative, environmental corrosion (soil or moisture) is resisted. The method is typically applied to iron or steel structures such as underground pipelines, storage tanks, the interior of water storage tanks, ocean pilings, and electrical transmission towers. Buried steel structures will revert back to their natural state as an iron oxide without proper intervention.

Conclusion Industrial training program in BPCM had given opportunities to trainee to prepare himself as future E&I technician. BPCM is one of the best company/ plant for trainee to have exposure on chemical production plant industry. 6 months period is the most suitable duration period for industrial training because it has enough time to maximize the learning process. BPCM has a lot of employees who is willing to help to make this industrial training program a success.
