Indian Oil Corporation has successfully commissioned Octamax Unit at its Mathura refinery by using state-of-the-art refining technologies developed by its own R&D centre.

 
IOCL’s modern technology converts C-4 streams from catalytic cracker and/or Naphtha cracker units to high-octane gasoline (petrol) blending stream which complies with stringent fuel quality norms. 
 
The foundation stone of the Octamax Unit at Mathura refinery was laid by petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan on March 6, 2016. The project has been completed much ahead of the targeted schedule and without any cost overrun. 
 
The blending octane number of the sample drawn from the newly commissioned unit was seen to be 118, higher than the guaranteed 108, while meeting all other defined product properties. The technology once again showcases the technical prowess of IndianOil in meeting the BS-VI fuel quality norms through indigenous efforts. 
 
IOCL says that Octamax is a true example of the Make in India spirit where all activities, from concept to development of the technology, preparation of basic design engineering package, erection and commissioning of the unit, have been accomplished through indigenous efforts of IndianOil R&D and Mathura refinery.
