India's refining capacity to double : Dharmendra Pradhan

Capacity to reach 600 million tonnes

by Dolly Basantani

According to Petroleum Minister, Dharmendra Pradhan, India’s refining capacity is to be doubled to meet the growing need of petroleum products. At present, India has a capacity of more than 235 million metric tonnes. The refining capacity is targeted to touch 600 million metric tonnes.

In line with PM Narendra Modi’s aim of reducing oil imports by 10 per cent by 2022, Pradhan said that about 75 per cent of the domestic demand would be fulfilled by indigenous production by 2040.
