Reliance announces 10-day shut-down at its Jamnagar crude processing unit in July

RIL's 29 million tonnes-a-year Jamnagar SEZ refinery has two CDUs of 290,000 barrels per day each.

The SEZ unit of Jamnagar refinery of Reliance Industries Limited is planning to shut down one crude distillation unit for routine maintenance and inspection activities in the first half of July for about 10 days, Reliance industries said in a release today.

This opportunity would also be utilised to carry out necessary modifications to improve the reliability and performance of the unit, the company added.

The other three crude distillation units, including major secondary processing units, are planned to operate at normal throughput. The planned maintenance turnaround at the refinery is not expected to have any impact on commercial commitments, RIL added.
