Management Discussion & Analysis
A separate report on Management Discussion and Analysis is annexed to
Petroleum Refining sector continued to play a dominant role in
Company''s business. During the year, EIL has achieved good progress on
the following major jobs, some of which were commissioned/likely to be
commissioned in the next financial year. These jobs include:
- 9 MMTPA grassroot Guru Gobind Singh Refinery Project of HPCL -
Mittal Energy Limited at Bathinda, Punjab has been successfully
commissioned in record time of less than 44 months. The Refinery was
dedicated to the Nation by the Hon''ble Prime Minister of India, Dr.
Manmohan Singh on April 28, 2012. The Refinery consists of SPM (Onshore
& Offshore) for receiving crude from tankers and crude oil terminal at
Mundra for storage and onward pumping to refinery at Bathinda through
1014 km of 30 / 28 cross country pipeline, CPP of 165 MW capacity
and secondary process units viz. VGO HDT, PFCC, DCU, MS Block, DHDT to
achieve high distillates yields meeting EURO-IV norms and a
petrochemical unit producing Polypropylene. The Refinery is energy
efficient and environment friendly. Diverse environment protection
measures have been incorporated in the design of all project facilities
which includes SRU, state-of-the-art ETP, Vapour Recovery System and
low NOx burners in furnaces. This has provision for producing Euro-V
product also along with alkylation unit in the future. The Refinery has
been built at the cost of USD 4 billion.
- Mangalore Refinery & Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL), a subsidiary of
Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited having a nameplate capacity of
9.69 MMTPA, has processed close to 12 MMTPA of crude with their Phase-I
and Phase-II units. As part of Phase-III Refinery facilities, MRPL has
planned to upgrade the refinery to meet Euro-III/IV specifications for
its entire Diesel pool, including exports and also increase the crude
processing capacity to 15 MMTPA by adding CDU/VDU of 3.0 MMTPA
capacity. Associated Utilities/Offsites are being augmented to cater
to MRPL''s Phase-III requirements. The entire Project is being
implemented on hybrid mode of LSTK/OBE/conventional system for various
units. Major secondary processing facilities are being implemented on
LSTK/OBE route while all the Utilities/Offsites are being implemented
on EPCM route. EIL is the PMC for the LSTK contractors and EPCM
consultant for Utilities/Offsites works. EIL has also been awarded the
OBE-orders for the PFCC, SRU and PPU of Phase-III Project.
MRPL had targeted to commission, at least, the CDU/VDU before March,
2012. They declared mechanical completion of CDU/VDU in November, 2011.
Utilities/Offsites, being implemented in EPCM mode under EIL had faced
several unique impediments during construction phase like the enormous
site grading, hard rock in patches of the site, PDFs, saving
Benkinatheshwar temple, unprecedented rains and many more issues. EIL''s
management encouraged and supported its team for making all-out efforts
for Utilities and Offsites to be made ready before March, 2012.
Dedicated efforts by EIL/MRPL team of engineers, well- supported by the
Managements of both the organizations and Contractors led to completion
of the required Utilities/Offsites also, ensuring smooth commissioning
of CDU/VDU on March 29, 2012 i.e. well within the targeted dates.
Client could dispatch all the products from the new units and could
realize the huge Income Tax benefit under section 80 (ib) for which
