MRPL energises quarterly profit by 15.6% to `1,353 cr
Net profit of Rs 1,353 crore in January-March was 15.6 per cent higher than Rs 1,170 crore net profit in the same period a year ago, the company said in a statement.
MRPL made $8.24 on turning every barrel of crude oil into fuels like petrol and diesel, as opposed to a gross refining margin (GRM) of $6.97 per barrel in fourth quarter of the previous 2014-15 fiscal year.
"The improvement in GRM is mainly on account of products like polypropylene and pet coke generated out of the new Phase-III units and increase in throughput," the statement said.
