Petroleum Refining & Marketing
Petroleum refining and marketing (R&M) is the second link in Reliance's drive for growth and global leadership in the core energy and materials value chain.
The Jamnagar manufacturing division is the world's largest refining hub. The entire refining complex was built in a record time at globally competitive capital costs – in fact, at costs much lower than comparable refineries around the world. Its scale, design, flexibility, level of automation and degree of integration heralded the way refineries of the future would be built. The speedy growth of the complex lies at the heart of India's transformation. It has transformed India from being a net importer of petroleum products to a net exporter, thereby ensuring the nation's energy security.
With crude processing capacity of 1.24 million Barrels Per Stream Day (BPSD), the Jamnagar refinery is a trendsetter and has won several awards, including the prestigious 'International Refiner Of The Year' award. It also enjoys the distinction of housing some of the world's largest units, such as the Fluidised Catalytic Cracker (FCC), Coker, Alkylation, Paraxylene and Polypropylene plants.
Fuels from Jamnagar refinery are exported to several countries across the world. This complex refinery is future ready and can produce gasoline and diesel of any grade. Reliance also has another refinery – the sixth largest in the world – in the Special Economic Zone at Jamnagar. This refinery has a capacity for processing 580,000 BPD of crude. The company also markets petroleum fuels in several African countries through its subsidiary Gulf Africa Petroleum Corporation (GAPCO).
