Phillips 66 licenses technology to Reliance for India gasification project

Phillips 66 has agreed to license its E-Gas technology to Reliance Industries for its planned gasification plants at Jamnagar, India, officials said on Monday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Reliance's Jamnagar site is the largest refining complex in the world, with an aggregate refining capacity of 1.3 million bpd.

The planned gasification plants at Jamnagar will be among the largest in the world and will process petroleum coke and coal into synthesis gas utilizing the E-Gas technology, the company says.

The synthesis gas will be used as feedstock for a new chemical complex and will fuel the refinery's existing gas turbine power generation units.

“We look forward to this opportunity to work with Reliance on the largest gasification project in the world,” said Rex Bennett, president of specialties and business development at Phillips 66.

“Our E-Gas technology will be used to turn petcoke and coal into clean, reliable energy for Reliance’s refinery and petrochemical plant operations.”

Phillips 66, the downstream spinoff of ConocoPhillips, will also provide process engineering design and technical support relating to the gasification technology process area, it said.

The E-Gas technology has been utilized in commercial applications since 1987, Phillips 66 said.

It incorporates a gasification system design that can be applied with gas and steam turbine combined-cycle power generation to produce electric power, as well as synthesis gas applications for the production of hydrogen, chemicals or substitute natural gas in flexible combinations.
