Reliance plans FCCU shutdown at Jamnagar for 5 weeks

Reliance Industries Ltd., Mumbai, is planning to shut a fluidized catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) at the Jamnagar refinery for about 5 weeks for routine maintenance and inspection beginning the second week in November.

The company said all four crude distillation units and other major secondary processing units are expected to operate at normal throughput.

The shutdown will provide an opportunity to carry out a revamp job in one of the polypropylene units.

Reliance informed various stock exchanges of its plans at the 1.24 million-b/d refinery in Gujarat, India (OGJ Online, Apr. 18, 2016).
