Reliance Industries gets Phillips 66 E-Gas technology license

MUMBAI, INDIA: Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has selected Phillips 66’s E-Gas technology for its planned gasification plants at Jamnagar. Reliance’s Jamnagar site is the largest refining complex in the world, with an aggregate refining capacity of 1.3 million barrels of oil per day. The planned gasification plants at Jamnagar will be among the largest in the world and will process petroleum coke and coal into synthesis gas utilizing the E-Gas technology. The synthesis gas will be used as feedstock for a new chemical complex and will fuel the refinery’s existing gas turbine power generation units.

Phillips 66 will license its E-Gas technology to Reliance and provide process engineering design and technical support relating to the gasification technology process area. “We look forward to this opportunity to work with Reliance on the largest gasification project in the world. Our E-Gas technology will be used to turn petcoke and coal into clean, reliable energy for Reliance’s refinery and petrochemical plant operations,” said Rex Bennett, President, Specialties and Business Development, Phillips 66.
