IOC to commission Paradip refinery by Mar 2012
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA / STAFF WRITER
New Delhi, Oct 19, 2010 (PTI) State-owned Indian Oil Corp (IOC) today said its Rs 29,777-crore Paradip refinery in Orissa will be commissioned by March 2012 and will cater to domestic market rather than exports as previous thought, due to rise in fuel demand at home.
“We will hardly be doing any exports from Paradip as the entire production will be consumed in the domestic market,” IOC Director (Refineries) B N Bankapur told reporters here.
The refinery was originally planned to export at least 2.05 million tons of petrol and 124,000 tons of naphtha out of its yearly output of 15 million tons.
“But with petrol demand growing by 13-14 per cent and diesel by 8-10 per cent, I don’t think we will be left with any product to export,” he said.
The refinery will produce 5.97 million tons of diesel, 3.4 million tons of petrol, 1.
