Reliance Industries Ltd has resumed work at a crude distillation unit at its old Jamnagar refinery after a three-week shut-down because of maintenance.

The company restarted CDU-I on thursday, an industry source said. The RIL spokesperson declined comment.

Earlier this month the company had said it would partially shut down the refinery (J-1) for 2-3 weeks to carry out maintenance work.

RIL will shut a crude distillation unit (CDU) at J-1 of 25,000 barrels per day, from July 3, it had said.

The CDU is the main processing unit in a refinery which converts crude oil into products.

The company had said it would utilise the shutdown period as an opportunity for implementing significant efficiency improvement measures in the unit.
