Reliance Industries plans to invest $ 9.8 billion in a crude-oil-to-chemicals (COTC) complex at the company's Jamnagar site in India, Chemical Week reports.

Mumbai/India — To maximize production of petrochemicals at the Jamnagar refinery and gasification plants, Reliance Industries announced plans to leverage the site's operations. According to Chemical Week, the company is proposing to develop a total area of 2,000 acres adjacent to its world-scale facilities to construct a COTC complex.

Reliance intends to build COTC units including a multi-feed steam cracker and multi-zone catalytic cracking (MCC) unit. The company also plans to convert the site's existing fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit to a high-severity FCC (HSFCC) or Petro FCC unit, to maximize ethylene and propylene yields.

The MCC/HSFCC complex will have combined capacity for 8.5 million metric tons/year (MMt/y) of ethylene and propylene, and total extraction capacity for 3.5 MMt/y of benzene, toluene, and xylenes. It will also have combined capacity for 4.0 MMt/y of para-xylene (p-xylene) and ortho-xylene. The steam cracker will have combined capacity for 4.1 MMt/y of ethylene and propylene, and feed crude C4s to a 700,000-metric tons/year butadiene extraction plant.
