Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, proposing to move the multi-billion dollar refinery project planned in Ratnagiri to another site in the coastal district, a senior official in the CM’s office said on Wednesday.

The project was earlier proposed to be built at Nanar in Ratnagiri district, but has got stalled due to opposition from local organisations and the ruling Shiv Sena in the state.

"The CM wrote a letter to the prime minister in January regarding shifting of the refinery project to another site,” the official said.

The nearly $60 billion project is to be jointly constructed by Saudi Aramco and the UAE’s Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
