It will begin with field trials in August and commercial launch in 2015, he said.

Ambani said Reliance Retail, which during the last fiscal became the biggest retailer in the country by revenue, is aiming doubling revenue from its retail business every 3-4 years.

While it looks to raising output from its eastern offshore gas fields, RIL will in 2015-16 begin extracting gas from coal seams (coal-bed methane or CBM) from Sohagpur blocks in Madhya Pradesh, Ambani said.

His mother Kokila Ambani, wife Nita Ambani and children were also present on the occasion.

RIL, which is currently ranked 135 on the Fortune 500 list of global companies, is looking at breaking into the top 50, Ambani said.
