HPCL commissions Visakh refinery units

Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd. has commissioned units enabling its Visakh refinery in Andhra Pradesh, India, to produce gasoline with emission standards equivalent to Euro 4 (less than 50 ppm sulfur).

In phases, HPCL commissioned a naphtha hydrotreater, continuous catalytic reformer, FCC-naphtha hydrotreater, and isomerization unit. The company said the work boosted crude capacity to 8.3 million tonnes/year (166,000 b/d).

HPCL also has a diesel hydrotreater project under way to enable the refinery to produce Euro 4 diesel (OGJ Online, Apr. 1, 2010).
