    FCCU at Reliance’s new plant shut due to tech snag-sources

    NEW DELHI, June 10, 2010 (Reuters) – India’s Reliance Industries Ltd, owner of the world’s biggest refining complex, has shut a fluid catalytic cracker unit (FCCU) at its 580,000 barrels-per-day refinery due to a technical snag, two trade sources said on Thursday.
    In May 2009, Reliance started a 200,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) FCCU, the world’s largest, at its export-focussed refinery, located next to the old 660,000-bpd plant in Jamnagar in western Gujarat state.

    “The FCCU has been shut since last two-three days due to some technical snag,” said one of the sources, adding it was expected to resume operations in a week to 10 days.
    The FCCU converts vacuum gas oil into light value-added products like liquefied petroleum gas, gasoline-blending components and diesel. No immediate comment was available from Reliance.

    The second source confirmed that the unit was shut earlier this week. He, however, did not give a time frame by when the unit is expected to come online. “Difficult to say when it will resume operation, it all depends on nature of the job,” he said.
    The 580,000-bpd refinery started operations in late December 2008. In its annual report for the 2009/10 fiscal (April-March), Reliance said the refinery achieved peak capacity utilisation rate of 120 percent during the year.
