"With the existing RIL refinery at Jamnagar, it will have a total processing capacity of 1.24 million barrels per day. This will make Jamnagar the refining capital of the whole world," Mr Ambani said.

"On completion, the RPL refinery will have the ability to process heavy and sour crude. It will also produce value added products meeting the highest quality specifications in the world," Mr Mukesh added.

He said, "during this year, the number of shareholders of RPL went up from close to 12 lakh to nearly 20 lakh. This reflects the immense confidence investors have placed in company's future. RIL's existing refinery was also set up in 36 months. - PTI
