RIL Shuts Down Units at Dahej Plant due to Water Shortage

NDTV, June 3, 2016

Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL) was forced to temporarily shut down several plant units at its Dahej petrochemical complex in Gujarat, India earlier this week due to a unexpected shortage of industrial water. The shortage was caused by a "lower release of dam water and the significantly increased salinity of the facility's water supply," according to the company. As a result, RIL's purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plants were both temporarily shut down and other plants are running at reduced capacity. 

According to a statement released by the company today, June 3rd, the purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plants have been restarted, and the company is ramping up production to full capacity at Dahej.
