Reliance Industries’ deal with Aramco: Mukesh Ambani wants chemicals to dominate Jamnagar refinery output

Reliance Industries (RIL), India’s most profitable company, has prepared a blueprint for its oil-to-chemical (O2C) play as it advances the negotiations with strategic investor Saudi Aramco to sell strategic stake in the business. According to the plan, RIL wants to convert 70 per cent of its output from Jamnagar refinery and petrochemical complex to chemicals. At present, the complex produces 90 per cent fuels – primarily petrol, diesel, naphtha, kerosene and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) – and the rest 10 per cent chemicals.

“The ultimate goal is to achieve over 70 per cent conversion of the crude, which is refined in RIL’s twin refineries in Jamnagar, to high-margin chemical building blocks of olefins and aromatics,” said company sources. The present petrochemicals production includes polymers, polyesters, fiber intermediates, aromatics, elastomers and composites solutions. Read More
