India's Reliance Industries Shuts FCC Unit at Jamnagar Refinery For Maintenance

India's private refiner Reliance Industries Limited said on Wednesday a secondary unit at its export-focused refinery in the western state of Gujarat has been shut since June 6, which may delay the shipment of some product cargoes.

The refinery, which has the capacity to process 704,000 barrels of crude per day (bpd), is part of the world's biggest refining complex in the city of Jamnagar in Gujarat state.

Reliance, which operates the refining complex, did not give a reason for the "emergency shutdown" of the refinery's fluidized catalytic cracking unit (FCCU).

"The FCCU unit is being repaired on top priority and is expected to be restarted expeditiously," the company said in a stock exchange filing.

"Consequently, some product shipments may get delayed and we are working to minimize the impact on our customers," it said.

A source familiar with the matter said that the unit will be fixed in a week's time.

The refining complex in Jamnagar has two refineries. The 704,000 bpd export-focussed plant is adjacent to the 330,000 bpd refinery that mostly sell products in the local market.
