SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indian petrochemical major Reliance Industries is expected to start up its planned new cracker in Jamnagar by the end of 2014, said a source close to the company on Tuesday.

The cracker would have the capacity to produce 1.4m-1.6m tonnes/year of ethylene, he said.

Reliance has yet to choose a contractor that will build the cracker but it should be soon, the source said.

The key feedstocks for the cracker would be offgases from the company’s two worldscale refineries at Jamnagar but the company would also utilise other refinery streams.
