Here is a Reliance Jamnagar Expansion update (Essar who is also a Reliance partner is now doing expansion(PhaseI) & coker (Phase2) at Vadnair). Think I sort of knew the slate was somewhat heavier from some earlier news items but didn’t think difference was this small (ie 27 vs 24 API). And the Acid level of 0.6 is probably enough to do lot Bitumen/Syncrudes it they wanted too – but chances are even if it made economic sense (doesn’t) having level 0.6 and actually being set up for dealing with Naphthanic Acid crudes is whole different story.
Looks like they are still on glide path for completing new expansion & coker this year – haven’t heard lot on the progress of new petcoke gasifier that was going to use all 8,000 tpd petcoke from new expansion, so perhaps it is still year following project.
