Reliance to produce only jet fuel and petrochemicals at Jamnagar
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.
