The project included securing ethane refrigeration capacity along the US Gulf Coast, delivery of dedicated very large ethane carriers for shipments from the US Gulf Coast to India’s west coast, construction of ethane receipt and handling facilities, and laying pipelines and upgrading crackers to receive ethane at Dahej, Hazira, and Nagothane manufacturing facilities.

RIL said the supply of ethane from the US will provide feedstock security and flexibility and allow the company to select the best feed mix based on market conditions.
