Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd. (HPCL) has taken delivery of a fully automated black oil terminal at its 166,000-b/d Visakhapatnam refinery on India’s eastern coast.

HPCL is moving the refinery’s terminals to make room for processing units to produce low-sulfur fuels meeting Euro 4 standards.

The new black oil terminal has capacity for 94,000 cu m of products, including bitumen, furnace oil, low sulfur heavy stock, light diesel, jute batching oil, and high-flash high-sulfur diesel.

Mott MacDonald, London, called the facility “India’s largest fully automated terminal exclusively for black oil products.” The firm handled design, engineering, procurement, and project and construction management.

HPCL also is adding a light-oil and LPG terminals on the new site. In February it commissioned a single-point mooring able to offload very large crude carriers.
