Reliance Industries Limited has planned to produce only jet fuel and petrochemicals at its Jamnagar refinery. The company has developed an oil-to-chemical strategy that will transform the Jamnagar refinery from leader in fuels to chemicals.

RIL aims to achieve more than 70% conversion of crude refined to chemicals like olefins and aromatics, in Jamnagar. The company has developed a Multizone Catalytic Cracking (MCC) process that will convert feedstock to high quality ethylene and propylene in a single run.  

Reliance has built the world’s first Refinery Off-Gas Cracker complex having a production capacity of 1.5 million tons per year. The complex is importing ethane from the USA to produce petrochemicals.
