RIL commissions world’s largest ROGC complex at Jamnagar

Wednesday, January 03, 2018

Reliance Industries today said it has commissioned the world's largest refinery off-gas cracker (ROGC) complex at Jamnagar which will use refinery process residue to produce feedstock used to make petrochemicals.

The ROGC is part of the USD 11 billion capital expenditure RIL had announced in one of the largest brown- field expansion of energy and petrochemical projects globally. In a press statement, RIL said it has "successfully commissioned and achieved design throughput of the world's first ever and largest ROGC complex of 1.5 million tonnes per annum capacity along with downstream plants and utilities."

ROGC uses off-gases from RIL's two refineries at Jamnagar as feedstock. "This innovative approach of integration with refineries provides a sustainable cost advantage, making ROGC competitive with respect to the crackers in the Middle East and North America which have feedstock cost advantage," the statement said.

ROGC design is highly flexible and energy efficient. It is the latest addition to RIL's existing cracker portfolio, consisting of cracker facilities at Nagothane in Maharashtra and Hazira, Dahej and Vadodara in Gujarat.

There are nearly 270 ethylene plants globally with a combined capacity of over 170 million tonnes per annum. RIL's combined ethylene capacity is now close to 4 million tonnes a year at five of its manufacturing sites.
