Reliance executes major projects on schedule, Jamnagar

Reliance is executing major projects in its energy and materials chain at Jamnagar covering Para-Xylene, Cracker complex along with downstream plants and Gasification. Jamnagar is one the largest contemporary project sites globally with some of the largest and most complex process units ever built anywhere in this industry. These projects will add significant value to Reliance’s Refining & Petrochemical business and enable Jamnagar complex to achieve energy self-sufficiency. The benefits of integration at the Jamnagar complex will set a new paradigm of scale and value addition in the Refining and Petrochemicals industry.
Para-Xylene, Cracker and downstream projects (MEG, Linear Low density and Low density Polyethylene) as well as Gasification which is linked to RIL’s DTA refinery, have now been installed, mechanically complete and are in various stages of pre-commissioning and commissioning.
Reliance has recently announced the successful and flawless commissioning of the second and final phase of Para-xylene (PX) comprising of PX Crystallizers trains, Trans-alkylation and Aromatic Extraction units at Jamnagar.
The Cracker project has a unique configuration as this world scale plant is tightly integrated with RIL’s refineries and will use refinery off-gases as feedstock. The project comprises 1.5 MMTPA ethylene cracker along with downstream facilities for producing LDPE, LLDPE and MEG. This cracker will have one of the lowest cost positions globally. 
Gasification is one of the largest clean-fuel initiatives in the world. Gasification will make Jamnagar complex highly energy efficient with the lowest energy cost for any integrated Refinery and Petrochemicals facility globally.
