Reliance taps Fluor for project management in India on downstream expansions
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.
