Project Details

The Guru Gobind Singh Refinery will be a Zero Bottoms, Energy efficient, Environment friendly, High Distillate Yielding Complex Refinery that will be producing Clean Fuels and Polypropylene by processing Heavy, Sour and Acidic crudes.
As part of this project, the following are being established:

  • Grassroot refinery of 9 MMTPA in Bathinda, Punjab (200.000 BPSD)
  • Cross-country Crude Oil Pipeline (approx. 1014 km) from Mundra to Bathinda
  • Crude receipt facilities - Single Point Mooring ( SPM) buoy capable of handling Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCC)
  • Crude Oil Terminal (COT) approximately six kms away from the sea shore at Mundra, Gujarat
  • Captive Power Plant of 165 MW for refinery power and steam requirements

The refinery will be a World Class, state of the art refinery incorporating the latest technologies enabling it to excel the current specifications available in the country. The refinery configuration has been developed after extensive linear programming, keeping the domestic and regional requirements in mind, the latest cost effective technologies available for generating required fuel specifications, and future changes. The present configuration translates into one of the highest Nelson Indexes* for the refinery amongst all the refineries in the country.
