Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) is undertaking the expansion of an existing petrochemical complex in Gujarat, India.

The project involves the construction of a petrochemical complex with a capacity of 2 million tonnes per annum (MPTA) and a 450 MW pet coke-based power plant. The project is being implemented in phases.

The project includes the construction of an off-gas cracker, which will increase the capacity of ethylene from 1.883MTPA to 3.248MTPA; propylene from 0.759MTPA to 0.913MTPA; monoethylene glycol from 0.733MTPA to 1.466MTPA; low-density polyethylene from 0.19MTPA to 0.59MTPA; high-density and linear low-density polyethylene from 0.928MTPA to 1.478MTPA; and paraxylene from 1.856MTPA to 3.656MTPA.

The first phase includes the recovery of ethylene gases from various units in the refineries and this will be used to produce low-density polyethylene (LDPE).

The second phase includes the recovery of ethane and propane from the residual gases, besides setting up a cracker unit to further produce products like ethylene and propylene. Various downstream products like low LDPE and mono ethylene glycol can be produced from this unit.

The third phase includes the expansion of the capacity of gasification plants, ethylene cracker plant, and paraxylene plant.

The project also includes the construction of an ethane/naphtha steam cracker, storage tanks, a polyethylene plant and the installation of pipelines.
