The Project Team of IndianOil's Refineries Division has won the Petrotech Special Technical Award 2012 for Project Management for completing the motor spirit quality upgradation project at the Barauni, Guwahati and Digboi refineries in a record time of 32 months against the earlier bench-mark of 38 to 44 months.

The Award was received by IndianOil director [refineries] Raj Kumar Ghosh from Union minister of state for petroleum & natural gas R P N Singh in Delhi.

Ghosh was accompanied by IndianOil executive director [projects] S K Ghosh, general manager [projects] S K Singhal, deputy general manager [projects] for the Guwahati refinery S K Patra, general manager for the Digboi refinery K Bora and general manager for Barauni refinery R K Chug.

Petroleum & Natural Gas secretary G C Chaturvedi and IndianOil chairman R S Butola too shared the dais. IndianOil’s efforts for project excellence were appreciated for successfully implementing the 'Auto Fuel Quality Upgradation Projectsat North Eastern/ Eastern Refineries of IndianOil' in spite of all odds like remoteness of the project site, logistics and technological constraints etc. The Auto Fuel Quality Improvement Projects were undertaken by IndianOil on a war footing in order to meet the road map of meeting Auto Fuel Policy from the year 2010.

IndianOil is modernising its process units, power and utility generating units as well as storage and dispatch facilities on a continuous basis to improve operational efficiency and also to meet better product quality from time to time.

With a steady aim of maintaining its position as a market leader, IO is currently investing Rs 47,000 crore in a host of projects for augmentation of refining and pipelines capacities, expansion of infrastructure and product quality upgradation.
