IndianOil has dedicated to the nation three multi product pipelines which have been re-routed along the railway corridor at a cost of about Rs 98 crore.

The pipelines have been rerouted between IndianOil's foreshore terminal and Korukkupet terminal.

“The commissioning of these re-routed dock lines is a golden milestone as it will feed the Chennai market with surplus products and also the advanced technological involvement will lead to ensure high end efficiency and safety to these lines. The success of this project is an evidence to the fact that spirit of togetherness can lead to the best results”, director (pipelines), IndianOil, Anish Aggarwal said.

“We should focus on getting our projects completed before the stipulated time, so that we can make the best out of it before changes like Electric Vehicles arrive and disrupt product consumption”, he said.

Chennai Petroleum Corporation’s (CPCL) 11 million tonne refinery, refines and pumps out various products through pipelines to Trichy, Madurai, Sankari (Salem) and also to major consuming centres like Bengaluru.

As frequent maintenance and health integrity checks posed a challenge, and as the pipelines have had a run length of more than 40 years, it was decided in 2016 to relay or re-route the under-ground pipelines with newly constructed ones along the railway corridor.

Pipelines traversing a distance of about 10 kms, transport various products from CPCL to IOCL’s Tondiarpet, Korukkupet and Fore Shore terminals. The pipelines from CPCL to Foreshore terminal are connected to POL (Petroleum Oil) jetty's of Chennai Port for loading of products.
