HPCL commissions Visakh refinery units

By OGJ editors

Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd. has commissioned units enabling its Visakh refinery in Andhra Pradesh, India, to produce gasoline with emission standards equivalent to Euro 4 (less than 50 ppm sulfur).

In phases, HPCL commissioned a naphtha hydrotreater, continuous catalytic reformer, FCC-naphtha hydrotreater, and isomerization unit. The company said the work boosted crude capacity to 8.3 million tonnes/year (166,000 b/d).

HPCL also has a diesel hydrotreater project under way to enable the refinery to produce Euro 4 diesel (OGJ Online, Apr. 1, 2010).
