The Vadinar refinery (in Gujarat) is India’s second largest single-site, state of the art refinery, which constitutes approximately 8% of Indian refinery capacity.
Our refinery is one of the most modern and complex refineries (Nelson complexity index 11.8) in the world having businesses across the hydrocarbon value chain from refining to retail and is geared up to the vision of delivering crude to chemicals.
Our refinery is strategically located on the west coast of India, providing proximity to Middle East and Africa and also facilitate access to high consumption domestic as well as export market.
How it all started
Vadinar, a small coastal town located in Devbhoomi Dwarka district in the state of Gujarat, India, is home to one of the most complex refineries in the world. Our refinery started commercial production on May 1, 2008 and is today India's second largest single - location refinery, capable of handling a diverse range of crude - from sweet to sour and light to ultra-heavy.
The Refinery has an annual capacity of 20 million metric tonnes (MMT) or 405,000 barrels per day (bpd). It is capable of processing some of the toughest crudes and yet produce high quality Euro IV and Euro VI grade products. We can now produce high quality Bharat Stage (BS VI) compliant fuels that meet international standards. This brings us closer to the global emission standards.
