Over the past three decades, IndianOil R&D Centre has developed over thousands of formulations of lubricating oils and greases responding to the needs of Indian industry and consuming sectors like Defence, Railways, Public Utilities and Transportation. The Centre has also developed and introduced many new lubricant products to the Indian market like multigrade railroad oils.

Focused research in the areas of lubricants and grease formulations, fuels, refining processes, biotechnology, additives, pipeline transportations, engine evaluation, tribiological and emission studies, and applied metallurgy has won several awards. The R&D Center’s activities in refining technology are targeted in the areas of fluid catalytic cracking (FCC), hydroprocessing, catalysis, reside upgradation, distillation simulation and modeling, lube processing, crude evaluation, process optimization, material failure analysis and remaining life assessment and technical services to operating units.

In FCC, apart from process optimization and catalyst evaluation the accent is on the development of novel technologies aimed at value addition to various refinery streams. IndianOil's R&D Centre is fully equipped to provide technical support to commercial hydrocracker units in the evaluation of feedstocks and catalysts, optimization of operating parameters, evaluation of licensors' process technologies, development of novel processes and simulation models.

Material failure analysis and remaining life assessment of refinery equipment and installations is a highly specialized service being provided by the R&D Centre to the refineries of IndianOil as well as other companies.

With a vision of evolving into a leader as technology provider through excellence in management of knowledge, technology and innovation, IndianOil has launched IndianOil Technology Ltd. The new subsidiary markets the intellectual properties developed by IndianOil R&D Centre.
