MRPL - Phase III Project & Polypropylene Unit

Brief details of the Phase III Refinery Project

The objective of this project having an investment out lay of Rs.12,160 Crore is as follows :

  • Expansion of Capacity by adding additional 3 MMTPA crude processing
  • Up-gradation of low value products to high value products.
  • To process cheaper/opportunity crudes ( Sour/ Heavy & High TAN crudes)
  • Production of petrochemical feed stocks Viz. Propylene.
  • Maximize distillate yield.
  • Upgrading entire HSD into BS III/IV grade


MRPL is also executing a Polypropylene unit with an investment outlay of Rs.1803.78 Crore having an objective of producing Polypropylene from the Propylene produced in PFCCU, which is a value added product.

Following are the salient features of the various units that are being executed:
