Business Standard|November 26, 2021
Reliance Industries' (RIL) hiving off its Jamnagar gasification project into a wholly-owned subsidiary is a step towards its plans to grow in the hydrogen space.

This gasification project at Jamnagar was set up to produce syngas to meet the energy requirements of RIL'S crude oil refinery. It, however, could be monetised for expanding the company's new energy business. “The gasification unit will no longer serve just the refinery, an RIL official told Business Standard.

The refinery off-gases produced from this project earlier served as fuel. They have now been repurposed into feedstock for the refinery off gas cracker (ROGC). “This enables production of olefins at competitive capital and operating costs. Syngas as a fuel ensures reliability of supply and helps reduce volatility in the energy costs. Syngas is also used to produce hydrogen for consumption in the Jamnagar refinery, RIL said in a statement late Wednesday.

According to Morgan Stanley, RIL's announcement to separate its pet coke gasifier assets is another step towards monetising the potential synergies between its existing energy infrastructure and new energy plans.

JAKE GYLLENHAAL CARRIES CLAUSTROPHOBIC ‘THE GUILTY'

An emergency dispatch center doesn’t exactly sound like the most visually exciting place to set an entire film. But the technical limitation of being imprisoned in a soulless office while high stakes action takes place off-screen can be an inspired storytelling gimmick in the right hands, as it is in “ The Guilty,” directed by Antoine Fuqua, written by Nic Pizzolatto and starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

“In 2018, Bill Morris had asked me, ‘Yo, what song do you want me to play before your main?’ I said how about some Metallica? Let’s go! So he played Enter Sandman, and I won it from there. So last year, when I was down there, Bill asked me if I wanted to pick the song again for the main. I told him, ‘If you play Tool, right now, I guarantee you I’ll win.’ So while I’m rolling into the gate, Tool came on, and I looked over at my parents and just nodded my head. Right then, they knew - that I knew, that I was going to pull it off.”
