Grassroots refinery commissioned in India

By OGJ editors

HPCL-Mittal Energy Ltd. (HMEL) has commissioned its 180,000-b/d, zero-bottoms Guru Gobind Singh Refinery near Bathinda in the northern Indian state of Punjab.

The grassroots refinery has been running crude oil since last August, but commissioning of the full facility was delayed until Mar. 29 (OGJ Online, Nov. 2, 2011). Processing capacities include delayed coking, fluid catalytic cracking, and continuous catalytic reforming.

A propylene production plant is integrated with the refinery, which is connected to a crude oil terminal at Mundra, Gujarat, by a 1,017-km, 28-30-in. pipeline. The refinery has a 165-Mw captive power plant. The terminal has a single-buoy mooring able to handle very large crude carriers.

HMEL is a joint venture of state-owned Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd., Mumbai, and Mittal Energy Investment Pte. Ltd., Singapore.
