Work on the integrated refinery expansion project at Bharat Petroleum Corporation’s Kochi refinery is on track to achieve mechanical completion by May next year.
“About 80 per cent of the works are complete and we are entering the most crucial phase now,” said Executive Director Prasad K. Panicker pointing out that the remaining works involved more complex procedures.
The completion of the expansion work will raise the refining capacity from 9.5 million tonnes a year to 15.5 million tonnes and equip the refinery here for production of Bharat stage IV fuel for automobiles. The completion of the work will also see upgradation of the refinery residue stream.
The BPCL has already received environmental clearance for a petrochemicals complex and work on the project is expected to begin soon.
Completion of the refinery work will see cooking gas production at the refinery going up to more than one million tonnes a year. Kerala market would require about half this quantity.
