 IndianOil board has given its approval for expansion of the corporation’s Gujarat refinery from the existing 13.7 to 18 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) of crude oil processing capacity at an estimated cost of Rs 15,034 crore.

The project to augment the refinery’s capacity by 4.3 MMTPA will help meet the growing demand for products in the region.
 
The highlight of the project will be the proposed upfront execution of a new 15-MMTPA Atmospheric Vacuum Unit (AVU) with associated utilities to replace the four atmospheric units and two vacuum units. After many years in service and being old in design and small in capacity, these units are no longer energy-efficient.
 
Execution of the 15-MMTPA AVU in 50 months after stage-1 approval, ahead of other units by about 11 months, will provide impetus to the total project execution and will help to achieve savings and improve energy efficiency units. The commissioning of the new AVU almost a year ahead of other units, will also help in smooth commissioning and stabilisation of other downstream secondary processing units.
