The Prime Minister shall also lay the foundation stone of the Cauvery basin refinery at Nagapattinam.
The Ramanathapuram - Thoothukudi section (143 km) of the Ennore-Thiruvallur-Bengaluru-Puducherry-Nagapattinam-Madurai-Tuticorin Natural Gas pipeline (ETBPNMTPL) has been laid. The pipeline shall utilise the gas from ONGC Gas fields and deliver indigenous natural gas as feedstock to M/s. Southern Petrochemical Industries Corp. Ltd. (SPIC) at Tuticorin and other industrial/commercial customers and CGD GAs.
The gasoline desulfurisation unit at CPCL, Manali refinery shall produce low sulfur (less than 8 ppm) environment-friendly gasoline, which will reduce emission and contribute towards a cleaner environment.
The grassroots refinery with 9 million tpy capacity is to be set up at Nagapattinam by a joint venture (JV) between IndianOil and CPCL. The new refinery will produce MS and diesel meeting BS-VI specifications and polypropylene as a value-added product and anticipates approximately 80% indigenous sourcing of materials and services.
