Paradip Refinery

Paradip Refinery, was commissioned in 2016, is situated in Paradip, Jagatsinghpur district in the State of Odisha. Situated on the Eastern Coast this Refinery caters to the petroleum products demand & is strategically located for export of petroleum products to South-East Asian countries.

Paradip Refinery is IndianOil’s first refinery with single Atmospheric Column for processing 15.0 Million Metric Tonnes Per Annum. The crude receipt is by 3 nos. Single Point Mooring (SPM) located at around 30 kms inside the sea to facilitate Crude delivery by VLCC. The refinery is designed to process 100% High Sulphur Crude and TAN of 0.5.

Several first-time technological features have been installed at Paradip Refinery including Flue Gas Desulphurisation facilities for firing high Sulphur Vacuum Residue & Vapour Recovery system from jetty loading to meet the stringent emission norms of SOx and Volatile organic emissions despite processing heavy high Sulphur Crude. The refinery is in a synergic partnership with the environment as this is a zero effluent discharge refinery and with strictly monitored and controlled stack emissions which are uplinked on real time basis to the server of Central Pollution Control Board.

The refinery consists of an Alkylation unit to produce octane-rich low-benzene MS blend component. The refinery configuration also consists of “INDMAX” unit which is indigenous IOCL technology. It is capable to produce high yield of LPG and propylene. The refinery can produce various petroleum products like gasoline, diesel, kerosene, and aviation turbine fuel, Propylene, Sulphur and Petroleum Coke. The refinery is also designed to produce total Premium quality Gasoline variants for export.. Major units are AVU, Coker, CCRU, VGO Hyrdro-treater, Sulfur Recovery unit, Diesel hydro-treater, Sulphuric Acid Regeneration Unit (SARU).

On the petrochemical front Paradip produces various grades of PP from its Polypropylene unit.. To expand IOCL’s petrochemical footprint a ERU (Ethylene Recovery Unit) and MEG (Mono Ethylene Glycol) unit were installed.

Major products:LPG, Propylene, Polypropylene, MEG, High Speed Diesel (BS-VI), Motor spirit (BS-VI), Reformate, ATF, Superior Kerosene Oil, Sulphur, LCO, PetCoke & Bitumen. PTA will be produced from the refinery post commissioning of the new petrochemical units which are under implementation.
