Index heavyweight Reliance Industries (RIL) rose 0.38% ahead of its Q2 results today, 15 October 2012. RIL early this month signed a 15-year heavy crude oil supply contract and a memorandum of understanding with Venezuelan state-run oil company Petroleos de Venezuela SA (PDVSA) for further development of Venezuelan heavy oil fields. PDVSA will supply between 300,000 to 400,000 barrels per day of Venezuelan heavy crude oil to RIL's two refineries in Jamnagar under a 15 year crude oil supply contract. As per the MoU with PDVSA, RIL is to explore upstream options for joint participation in heavy oil projects of the Orinoco Oil Belt. RIL will also co-operate with Petroleos by providing technical assistance in areas of offshore upstream, refining and other downstream projects.
