IndianOil Corporation Limited  has signed an agreement with Numaligarh Refinery Limited (NRL) and Paradip Port Trust to help the NRL build a crude oil pipeline from Paradip Port (Odisha) to Numaligarh (Assam). 
 
The NRL is putting efforts to expand its refining capacity from current three million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) to nine MMTPA. The proposed crude pipeline from Paradip to Numaligarh is part NRL’s expansion plan. 
 
IndianOil, a Maharatna enterprise, possesses a modern crude oil unloading system through Single Point Mooring (SPM) system at Paradip Port to meet crude oil requirements of its refineries at Paradip, Haldia, Barauini and Bongaigaon. 
 
NRL is interesting in utilising the existing SPM system of IndianOil for import of crude oil for the proposed expansion of its refinery at Numaligarh. 
 
Union minister of state for petroleum and natural gas Dharmendra Pradhan commended Indian Oil for securing the oil demand of north eastern states through the Paradip Haldia Barauni, Guwahati Siliguri Pipelines. “The centre is contemplating to expand the capacity of the port at Paradip and set up a crude oil terminal to be used to meet oil requirement of east Asia,” he said. 
 
Ministry of road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari said the centre is mulling to make Paradip as the growth engine not only for the development of Odisha but for the entire North Eastern states. He said around Rs 7,000 crore would be invested in the project out of which Rs 1,000 crore would be invested in Paradip. Similarly, investment would also be made in Assam.
