Construction is under way but expected to be finished later than earlier predicted on the 300,000-b/d refinery to be operated by state-owned Indian Oil Corp. at Paradip, Orissa, on India’s eastern coast.

According to Minister of State for Petroleum & Natural Gas Shri R.P.N. Singh, IOC expects the project to be completed by the first quarter of 2013. Last year, IOC said it expected commissioning to take place in March 2012 (OGJ, Nov. 29, 2010, Newsletter).
