Reliance Industries Limited announced on Monday that it is shutting down a crude distillation unit at its old refinery at Jamnagar for maintenance and inspection for up to four weeks starting from June 20.
The company said in a regulatory filing that it “is planning to shut down one of the crude distillation units and coker units of its DTA refinery at Jamnagar for routine maintenance and inspection activities, for about 3 to 4 weeks starting from June 20, 2019.”
Other units to operate normally
There are two refineries in Jamnagar, Gujarat, that are owned and operated by Reliance Industries Limited — a 33 million tonne a year DTA refinery that caters to local fuel demand and a 35.2 million tonnes only-for-export unit.
RIL said that other crude distillation and secondary processing units are expected to operate normally during the period.
