Indian Oil to shut key units at Koyali refinery for maintenance

Indian Oil Corp. the country's biggest refiner, will shut key units at its 274,000 barrel-per-day Koyali refinery in western Gujarat state from Thursday for maintenance and upgrade. The refiner would be revamping a 2.2 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) diesel hydrotreater during a 41-day shutdown to boost production of Euro IV compliant fuel. IOC also planned to carry out maintenance and upgrade job at some crude distillation units (CDU) and secondary units linked to the diesel hydrotreater. Koyali refinery has five CDUs. Due to planned shutdown of refinery units, IOC recently booked diesel cargoes for imports in June. From Thursday IOC would shut two crude units of 40,000 barrels per day (bpd) and 76,000 bpd for 25 days and 41 days for maintenance and to enhance capability to process tough crude grades. It would also shut another crude unit of 44,000 bpd about 8 days after CDU 1 resumes operations.
