Indian Oil Corporation Gujarat Refinery Alkyl Benzene Plant Expansion

VADODARA, INDIA: Gujarat Refinery, the largest refinery owned by Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), is planning to augment capacity of its linear alkyl benzene (LAB) plant to cater to growing industrial demand. The initial 120,000 metric tonne per annum capacity plant was commissioned in August 2004 with the investment of Rs 1,248 crore ($19.29 million) by the IOC.

“The capacity of this plant, which is largest in the country, will be raised by about 25,000 tonne. The necessity for expansion of the plant arose as the Gujarat Refinery found it difficult to meet the domestic demand when it remained shut for short period some time ago,” said Gautam Roy, Executive Director, Gujarat Refinery.
