Reliance Industries has selected Irving, Texas-based Fluor Corp. to perform project management services for projects being executed at its world-scale Jamnagar refining and petrochemical complex on the west coast of India in Gujarat.

In addition to assisting Reliance in project management, Fluor will also perform engineering and procurement services for the pet coke gasification project.

The expansion of energy and petrochemicals projects represents one of the largest such investments globally, according to the company.

The proposed coke gasification facility is among the largest-such projects ever built.

The scope of project management services to be provided by Fluor includes several world-scale units, such as petroleum coke gasification units, refinery off-gas cracker and downstream petrochemical plants, a captive power plant, associated utilities and offsites.

The completed gasification project will gasify petroleum coke to produce fuel and hydrogen for the expanded refinery and petrochemical complexes and captive power plant as well as feedstock for future chemicals production.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

can you convert, the by product of delayed coker i.e. petrolium coke into liquid by using direct or indirect cole liquificatin process........?

This has been a much talked about project over the last few years and it is good to see that it is now taking off. One looks forward to its successful completion and commissioning and whether it helps to spawn more such projects, given the interest in Delayed coking projects in India. Wonder if the decision would have been faster if SDA asphalt were the feed for gasification instead of Pet coke.

It is a very welcome step to have a gasification unit in a refinery in India. The resid / pet coke based gasification is the most practical solution to do value addition to these. It will open oppotunities for refineries to have hydrogen production, fuels and petrochemicals production along with power generation with reduced negative environmental impacts.

Reliance Industries built largest refinery in record time. The biggest Petcoke Gasification plant -is a challenging project. It is expected that more refineries are likely to take such decision.Hydrocarbon proffessionals would eagerly await further details on this project

The future of petrochemicals industry is depressing due to several unfavourable factors. one of them is depressed market. Is it wise to invest in such ventures? Of course investment in energy producing schemes are welcome.
