Reliance Petroleum Limited (“RPL”) has successfully completed the second year of implementation of its complex refinery, coming up in a Special Economic Zone at Jamnagar.

RPL has achieved 82% overall progress in just 24 months since commencement of the Project. Based on the progress so far, RPL is on course to complete the project ahead of its initial schedule of December 2008.

During the quarter, project implementation gained further momentum and led to achievement of several significant milestones:
• Engineering activities are nearing completion.
• Overall procurement progress exceeded 97%.
• More than 75% of equipments and tagged items already received at site.
• Deliveries of over dimensional cargos (ODC) and super ODCs are nearing completion.
• Over 40% of equipments have been erected; Project skyline changed dramatically.
• Overall construction progress crossed the 60% mark for the complex.
• Structural and pipe fabrication activities progressing at an accelerated pace.
• Sufficient site infrastructure mobilised to sustain equipment installation and fabrication activities on the fast track.

During the quarter, the project engineering activities were completed with all drawings for concreting, structural steel, underground piping as well as electrical and instrumentation released for construction.

Residual engineering activities to support ongoing construction are continuing. Successful completion of this massive engineering effort in less than two years has set a new global record in the refining sector.

It also reflects the success of a team effort that involved over 7,500 engineers, working from several interconnected locations across the world.
