Reliance to use Phillips 66's `E-Gas' technology for its gasification project

Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has selected Phillips 66's `E-Gas' technology for its planned gasification plants at Jamnagar.

RIL will use the technology to turn petcoke and coal into clean, reliable energy for its refinery and petrochemical plant operations.

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.

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 using the `E-Gas' Technology, RIL said in a release.

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, the release said.
