IOCL commissions Paradip-Sambalpur-Raipur-Ranchi Product Pipeline

IOCL has recently commissioned the Paradip-Sambalpur-Raipur-Ranchi product pipeline. The company commenced the use of the pipeline to evacuate products from the Paradip refinery in January 2017. The project entailed the construction of a 1,150 km pipeline across the states of Odisha, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand to connect the Paradip refinery with marketing tap-off points at Jatni and Jharsuguda in Odisha, Korba and Raipur in Chhattisgarh, and Ranchi in Jharkhand. The proposed pipeline will ensure the evacuation of refinery products like motor spirit, kerosene and high speed diesel to Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh.
