Reliance commissions 2nd phase of PX at Jamnagar

Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has successfully commissioned the second and final phase of paraxylene (PX) comprising of PX crystallisers trains, trans-alkylation and aromatic extraction units at Jamnagar. With the commissioning of this plant, RIL’s PX capacity will be more than doubled, and it will emerge as the world’s second largest producer of PX.
 
The PX plant is built with state-of-the-art crystallisation technology from BP which is highly energy efficient. RIL is now expected to account for about 11 per cent of global PX production.
 
The first phase comprising Train 1 of PX plant was commissioned in December 2016. Train 2 as part of second phase has been commissioned earlier this month and the last Train 3, is at an advanced stage of commissioning and will begin production later this quarter, RIL said.
 
 The PX plant is part of Reliance’s major projects underway in its energy and materials chain at Jamnagar covering PX, cracker complex along with downstream plants and gasification. Jamnagar is one the largest contemporary project sites globally with some of the largest and most complex process units ever built anywhere in this industry. “These projects will add significant value to Reliance’s Refining & Petrochemical business and enable Jamnagar complex to achieve energy self-sufficiency. The benefits of integration at the Jamnagar complex will set a new paradigm of scale and value addition in the refining and petrochemicals industry,” the company said in a press release.
 
“PX, cracker and downstream projects (MEG, linear low density and low density polyethylene) as well as gasification which is linked to RIL’s DTA refinery, have now been installed, mechanically complete and are in various stages of pre-commissioning and commissioning,” the release added. (RKS)
