Reliance inks MoU with Gujarat on petroleum education

Press Trust of India  |  Ahmedabad 

Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries today said it has signed a pact with Gujarat government to develop Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University into a top world class institute.

"In the last few years Reliance has been associated with Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University and today the company has signed an MoU and has envisaged to develop this university into a premium world class university," Reliance Industries Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani said.

Promoted by Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation (GSPC), the university offers undergraduate and post-graduate energy education programmes and intensive research initiatives.

Speaking at the the 5th Global Summit of Vibrant Gujarat here, Ambani said Reliance "has been an integral part of Gujarat's success story. Rather I would say an emotional part of its success".

Recalling his father late Dhirubhai's insistence of sustaining the spirit of being a Gujarati company, Ambani said Reliance has managed to achieve the same.

"Reliance will remain involved in Gujarat and maintain the same," he added.

Already RIL has made Jamnagar in the state the petroleum hub of the world. It has two refineries there with a total capacity of 1.24 million barrels per day (MBPD) of nominal crude processing capacity, the single largest refining complex in the world.
