Reliance O2C

  • Reliance’s O2C segment quarterly revenue fell 2.4% Y-o-Y to ₹141,096 crore primarily on account of lower price realisation led by 5.3% Y-o-Y decline in average Brent crude oil prices
  • O2C EBITDA for the quarter marginally increased by 1.0% Y-o-Y to ₹14,064 crore ($1.7 billion) led by higher gasoline cracks and advantageous feedstock sourcing; this was partially offset by lower downstream chemical margins and planned maintenance and inspection shutdown
  • Planned maintenance and inspection shutdown of CDU, FCCU, Delayed Coking and ROGC complex impacted yields and profitability. O2C EBITDA would have been higher on Y-o-Y and comparable on Q-o-Q basis, if all major units were available during the quarter.

“The O2C segment delivered resilient performance aided by operational flexibility and strong domestic demand. Staying true to its commitment to sustainability, Reliance has become the first Indian company to chemically recycle pyrolysis oil into circular polymers,” said Mukesh D. Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries Limited.

Oil & Gas

  • Reliance’s Oil & Gas segment quarterly revenues jumped 50.2% to ₹6,719 crore mainly on account of higher volumes partly offset by lower price realisation from KG D6 Field.
  • Oil & Gas EBITDA rose to a record high ₹5,804 crore, up 49.6% Y-o-Y
  • Block KG D6 is currently producing ~30 MMSCMD gas and ~ 21,000 Bbl of Oil / Condensate
