Technip was awarded by Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) a license, supply of basic engineering package and an engineering and procurement services contract for the Refinery Off-Gas Cracker (ROGC) plant. This contract is part of the expansion project being executed at RIL's world-scale Jamnagar refining and petrochemical complex in Gujarat, on the West coast of India.
The ROGC plant will be among the largest ethylene crackers in the world and will be integrated to RIL's Jamnagar refinery complex, using refinery off-gas as feedstock. The products from that plant will be utilized as feedstock for the new downstream petrochemical plants.
The ROGC plant will utilize Technip's ethylene technology, including its proprietary SMK®(1) furnaces technology, one of the major cornerstones of the Technip's ethylene know-how.
