RIL provides 700 tonnes oxygen to 3 states and UT daily

Mumbai: The oxygen supply including transportation in special tankers at minus 183 degrees Celsius is being made free of cost to the beneficiary states/UTs as part of the RIL’s CSR initiatives.

Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has tweaked its manufacturing process at the Jamnagar Refinery to produce and distribute around 700 metric tonnes of medical grade oxygen everyday to three states and a Union Territory, official sources said here on Tuesday.

The 700 tonnes of oxygen is being ferried daily since the past two days to Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Union Territory of Daman & Diu and Dadra & Nagar Haveli free of cost in special tankers, as per their specific needs. It is sufficient to provide relief to at least 70,000 critically ill Covid-19 patients daily in these states and UTs.

The sources added that medical grade oxygen is not a product that was produced at the Jamnagar Refinery earlier.

However, with the current surge in demand due to a spike in Covid-19 cases, the RIL installed equipment and set up process to produce and supply medical-grade oxygen by diverting industrial oxygen for the purpose.
