This is completely integrated with the downstream unis of RIL petrochemical units. These units manufacture propylene-based polymers as well as naphtha-base aromatics. There are adequate fully developed facilities for generation of power and steam, also supported by the facilities of the port and international standard logistic facilities. Process of refining: There are more than 50 processing units ar the refinery complex. They all process the feedstock, which gets converted into different finished outputs using complex refining processes. Crude oil distillation: This stage consists of both atmospheric as well as vacuum distillation Catalytic cracking: A fluidised catalytic cracker is used at Reliance Jamnagar for this process Catalytic reforming: The process of platforming takes place in this step of refining Delayed coke: This is the last stage of refining of the crude oil before converting it into various finished
