initiated Reliance’s backward integration from textiles
into polyester fibres and further into petrochemicals, petroleum
refining and oil and gas exploration and production.
In this process, he directed the creation of several new
world-class manufacturing facilities involving diverse technologies
that have raised Reliance’s petrochemicals manufacturing
capacities from less than a million tonnes to about twenty
million tonnes per year.
Shri Ambani directed and led the creation of the world’s
largest grassroots petroleum refinery at Jamnagar, India,
with a current capacity of 660,000 barrels per day (33 million
tonnes per year) integrated with petrochemicals, power generation,
port and related infrastructure.
Shri Ambani had set up one of the largest and most complex
information and communications technology initiative in
the world in the form of Reliance Infocomm Limited (now
Reliance Communications Limited).
Shri Ambani is also steering Reliance’s initiatives in a
world scale, offshore, deep water oil and gas exploration
and production program, setting up of a second petroleum
refinery at Jamnagar, development of infrastructure facilities
and implementation of a pan-India organized retail network
spanning multiple formats and supply chain infrastructure.
