Technip announced last week that it was awarded by Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) a license, supply of basic engineering package and an engineering and procurement services contract for the Refinery Off-Gas Cracker (ROGC) plant. This contract is part of the expansion project being executed at RIL's world-scale Jamnagar refining and petrochemical complex in Gujarat, on the West coast of India.
The ROGC plant will be among the largest ethylene crackers in the world and will be integrated to RIL's Jamnagar refinery complex, using refinery off-gas as feedstock. The products from that plant will be utilized as feedstock for the new downstream petrochemical plants.
The ROGC plant will utilize Technip's ethylene technology, including its proprietary SMK furnaces technology, one of the major cornerstones of the Technip's ethylene know-how.
Nello Uccelletti, Senior Vice President of Technip Onshore Business commented: "Technip is one of the largest experienced contractor on licensing, designing and implementing grassroot mega-crackers for ethylene production. This contract reinforces our position as a major player in this field. We are delighted to work with RIL to deliver this world-scale project."
Jean-Marc Aubry, Senior Vice President of Technip Region A stated: "This award is a significant milestone for Technip in India. Thank to this project, we hope to develop a long-term relationship with RIL for future developments in both onshore and other businesses."
Technip Region A is composed of Western Europe, Africa, India and Pakistan.
